Seven Days in the Art World

$ 16.95
This product is SOLD OUT.


Art and business, personal quests and personality cults, big bucks and the triumph of concept over beauty, being cool and in the know - these are the cardinal points in the contemporary art world. Enter author Sarah Thornton, an art historian and sociologist with moxie and a brilliant game plan. Willing to ask obvious questions, she infiltrates the seven circles of this competitive realm. An astute observer and stimulating storyteller whose crisp sentences convey a wealth of information, Thornton marvels at the military precision of a Christie's auction and the wild improvisation of an art-school critique. Softcover, 287 pages
