The negatives of the art world neatly ncapsulated within the brief but
Thorough History He Provideshistory he provides I really liked that a lot Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in The Exiles Gallery exchange for an honest review 4 to 45 stars Too 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 Thearlier sections were interesting but too much time on petty gossip not Dislocating China even good gossip about mega dealer Larry Gagosian I was hoping for a jaundicedye 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 Childerley excellent writing but also suffers from the having to project the NY fantasy life Lots of photos on google of Shnayerson hanging out in cream linen suits in the Hamptons with his moneyed associates whichxpalns the central problem with this book he doesn t want to offend anyone Why would he He has married a rich widow so why upset veryone in his social circle by writing a tough book The book is also just too long Nevertheless although not xplicitly attacked Shnayerson portrays what to me is a depressingly New York story of ruthless dealers arrogant artists and people with money than sense buying art Cruelty and Laughter either as an investment or to signal their monetary status and supposed cultural savvy The wholedifice seems thoroughly rotten to me Perhaps the author was cleverer and subtle than I appreciated Overview of the contemporary art market through the lens of the dealers who helped to build the market that we know now I was a bit disappointed that the book delivered less of the understanding of the business of the art world and structure of the art market and nded up being mostly a collection of name drops and anecdotes of dealers and artists not the high level overview and history of the market that I was hoping for But its portrayal of Gagosian its central figure was full of interesting insights on business and creating markets for products with lessons for anyone in the business of salesStory begins with the first postwar dealers Guggenheim Parsons Janis Castelli the most important of the bunch who set the tone for the next generations This generation mostly came from wealth and their rise coincided with rise of American art via abstract xpressionism and a few specific artists Pollock de Kooning Clifford Still Barnet Newman Ellsworth Kelly among first artists living in NY industrial spaces at the South Street Seaport Castelli possessed a continental European air that gave comfort to American buyers and he helped pioneer industry wide trends like larger liveable stipends for premium artists Johns and Rauschenberg forged a
