    mobi Àæread BoomInstagram || Twitter || Facebook || || Pinterest I am slightly ashamed to admit that for the longest time I claimed not to like modern art because all I knew about modern art came from representations by its critics and I was thinking that all of it was just blank canvases splashed with paint or clear plastic glasses filled with dish detergent and a single floating golf ball with titles like Existentialism #2 or Cry Aphrodite Of course I realize now that that's a bit like saying that you abhor the romance novel because you've seen people making fun of Twilight Everything is unflattering and exaggerated in parodyI am now a regular visitor of Modern Art museums and enjoy some of the pieces uite a bit Modern Art like everything else covers a fairly broad spectrum and there is something for everyone You might see a blank canvas splashed with pain

    mobi Àæread BoomA much compelling read than I had expected If you ever cracked open an art book featuring a painter from the 1950s and up – Rothko Basuiat Doig Murakami anyone whose work ever transited by New York really – or a movement to which they are associated chances are an art dealer was mentioned at some point Perhaps Leo Castelli for one but also a slew of others if only in passing Larry Gagosia

    mobi Àæread BoomToo long and too much detail about the boring minutiae of the business dealings and ups and downs of the big shot New York art dealers of the post war period The earlier sections were interesting but too much time on petty gossip not even good gossip about mega dealer Larry Gagosian I was hoping for a jaundiced eye such as that of Don Thompson's 12 Million Dollar Stuffed Shark A google reminded me who author Shnayerson is a Vanity Fair writer a magazine which has some excellent writing but also suffers from the having to project the NY fantasy life Lots of photos on goog

    mobi Àæread BoomThis book approaches art history a different way through an emphasis on the power brokering of powerful dealers like Castelli and Gagosian These brokers were important in two ways they found nurtured or poached promising artists thereby influencing the trends of contemporary art through their choices of artists and art schools to provide crucial gallery space media space or stipend; and they served as mediators between artist and wealthy collectors that ultimately led to the trend of extremely expensive art collecting as a form of financial investment and social status symbol among the mega wealthy

    mobi Àæread BoomChronology of art dealings in New York from the 1970s to the present focusing on the rise of the four current mega dealers As others have mentioned the account is exhaustive to a fault with only passing reference to the art movements and artworks and virtually no comment or evaluation on the author's part so this reads like the society pages than art history Not for anyone unfamiliar with contemporary art unless you don't mind constantly looking up particular artists or art pieces as they are name dropped in the text

    mobi Àæread BoomThis book is a bit like learning algebra You can’t skim over one chapter and expect to keep up with the remaining information that inevitably faces you I wanted to finish this book I swear However I skimmed a bit in the first chapter and I never really got caught up Yes I could have gone back and reread everything again but my heart was not in itI have a considerable love for fine artists and fine art in general With that said I struggled to connect to the artists and gallery owners in this book It’s a pity because the author researched this information so extensively Like I said I wanted to like this but it read like a textbookThanks to #NetGalley I had an advanced PDF to read and review All opinions are my own and I was not reuired t
