Duveen – Behrman, S. N.
Duveen, by S. N. Behrman. Signed by Joseph Duveen. Published in 1972 by Little, Brown and Company, Boston. In dust jacket.
Whether he knew nothing or everything about art itself, Sir Joseph Duveen, later Lord Duveen, was the most persuasive, dynamic and successful art dealer in history. He handled many of the world’s most priceless paintings and sculptures, oversold them to many of the world’s wealthiest men, monopolized the U.S. market for five decades, and transformed the American taste in art. In this new edition of Duveen, S. N. Behrman’s fascinating, wickedly-elegant portrait of Sir Joseph is now illustrated with photographs of Duveen’s most famous clients and color reproductions of many of the great works of art which they acquired.
