The Art Dealers

Front Cover
Cooper Square Press, 2002 - Art - 438 pages
"Containing ten new profiles, this revised and expanded edition spans several eras and presents a cross-section of superlative dealers. Herein, readers will find the recollections of legends like Leo Castelli (champion of Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol) and grand doyenne Betty Parsons, whose white-walled gallery displayed the early works of Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Barnett Newman. Iconoclasts of the 1970s and 1980s are amply represented, including Mary Boone and Annina Nosei, both of whom helped start the careers of Julian Schnabel and Jean Michel Basquiat. The new additions introduce readers to innovative contemporary dealers like Colin De Land (the dealer for Vito Acconci, Jeff Koons, and Joel Shapiro) and Jeffrey Deitch (the dealer for Paul McCarthy and Yoko Ono)."--BOOK JACKET.
