Product description

Review

Tiqui Atencio, known for her collection of Latin American, modern, and contemporary art, has long established herself as a distinguished figure in the art world. But now that she's interviewed over 80 of the world's most prominent art collectors, her expertise has reached new heights.--Casey Lesser "Artsy "

The book is an entertaining insider's guide to the thought processes of more than 80 of the world's top collectors. Being a highly regarded collector herself, Ms. Atencio has been able to coax some candid responses from major names like Eli Broad, Peter Brant, Stefan Edlis, Adam Lindemann and Anita Zabludowicz, art-loving 0.1 percenters whose buying and selling habits...are usually cloaked in confidentiality.--Scott Reyburn "The New York Times "

Yet another book by a poor little rich person who happens to be the recipient of millions/billions of dollars / daughter of an oligarch/ etc etc. The book opens with a note that the authors grandparents had their own private zoo. Great, so we know you're born into rich. Okay. So now about collecting art. Do we really want to hear from other similar unfortunate billionaires about how they develop 'taste' in their art collections? If you want to be amongst the hapless wealthy class with no idea about art but want to be 'cool' or 'elite' in your art collections then go ahead and read and perhaps you can compare notes. Otherwise, I recommend Michael Findlay's 'Value of Art'. Or give your millions away to a worthy charity rather than pampering your ego perhaps?

Inspiring, fun and very informative. Easy to read and with a lot of first-hand stories about art's world and its leading collectors. A great guide for those who are thinking of starting a collection. But If you simply like art, wether you are a collector or not, you will definitely enjoy this book

Tastes great.
3.0 out of 5 stars A book by the 1% for the 1%... 22 May 2017
By the phantom tollbooth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A book by the 1% for the 1%, full of amusing, but otherwise inconsequential, anecdotes.

It could have, should have, and would have been a much more interesting book had it focused on the other 99% percent of art collectors (i.e. people who are not multimillionaires), not just those whose are filthy rich, serve on museum boards, and fly in private jets to all the major art fairs and auctions.
