Description

Seven experts discuss the impact of a few important Americans who, through force of personality as well as the nature of their art collecting, helped shape both the culture of their times and some of the collections we enjoy today. They discuss the development of American culture and cultural institutions through the key leadership role of women and other mold-breaking individuals, and present new scholarship on collecting, patronage, philanthropy, and arts management.
