Baker & Taylor
The influential art collector and dealer shares his stories of friends made in business--from Jasper Johns to Joseph Cornell--to the famous art historians, collectors, artists, and scholars who have crossed his path along the way.

Book News
Feigen, an art dealer and collector with 50 years in the field, writes to an educated but not necessarily academic audience about painters he has represented (e.g., Rosenquist, Johns, Dubuffet, and Joseph Cornell), his galleries in New York and Chicago, and fellow dealers Julien Levy and Leo Castelli. He also discusses the eye of the successful collector/dealer; the great art-owning families, art historians, scholars, and conservators; the fate of Gertrude Stein's collection; and the commercialism of today's American museums.
