The Art of Collecting reveals private collectors' discoveries of art and artists, and the fascinating journey along the way. The book offers readers a rare opportunity inside the homes of twenty-three art collectors and a glimpse into the thinking and passion behind the decisions they make. Featuring lush photography of the collections, The Art of Collecting is like an intimate tour through a fine museum. Interviews by author Diane McManus Jensen will reveal anecdotes about the ongoing search for beautiful art and reveal secrets of how these collections - and their aesthetic - have evolved. There are fifteen essays on topics in collecting by experts in their field, with advice in areas such as lighting, insuring, framing, and more. For those who love and value art, this book demystifies collecting and gives practical suggestions on the collecting process.
