Rogues' Gallery: The Rise (& Occasional Fall) of Art Dealers

Regular price $25.95 USD
Regular price Sale price $25.95 USD

Philip Hook's riveting narrative takes us from the early days of art dealing in Antwerp, where paintings were sold by weight, to the unassailable hauteur of contemporary galleries in New York, London, Paris, and beyond. Along the way, we meet a surprisingly wide-ranging cast of characters from tailors, spies, and the occasional anarchist to scholars, aristocrats, and connoisseurs, some compelled by greed, some by their own vision of art and some by the art of the deal.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
