Descrição

This antiquarian book contains a fascinating account of the author's extensive experiences as an art dealer. Full of interesting anecdotes, humorous stories, and useful insights into the world of art dealing, this volume will be of considerable value to those with an interest in dealing art, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. The chapters of this book include: The Duveen Brothers, Remarking a Reliquary for £30000, The Prince who Lost his Tapestries, The Tragedy of the Jabach Vases, The Fatal Plate of Bernard Palissy, The Titled Kleptomaniac, The Maddest Collector I Have Ever Known, The Blackmailing of an Expert, and more. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Sobre o autor

James Henry Duveen was born in Haarlem, Holland, in 1873. He was educated in Holland and Belgium. Mr. Duveen studied for many years in the great art capitals—London, Paris, Naples, Florence, Berlin, Madrid—and pursued the exacting career of dealer in works of art from 1889 until 1923. Two volumes of his reminiscences, ART TREASURES AND INTRIGUE (1935) and SECRETS OF AN ART DEALER (1938), have been published in the United States.
