The Art of the Steal
The Art of the Steal | Christopher Mason
1 post | 2 to read
The Art of the Steal tells the story of several larger-than-life figures - the billionaire tycoon Alfred Taubman; the most powerful woman in the art world, Dede Brooks; and the wily British executive Christopher Davidge - who conspired to cheat their clients out of millions of dollars. It offers an unprecedented look inside this secretive, glamorous, gold-plated industry, describing just how Sotheby's and Christie's grew from clubby, aristocratic businesses into slick international corporations. And it shows how the groundwork for the most recent illegal activities was laid decades before the perpetrators were caught by federal prosecutors.

This was a recent #BookOutlet find...

This one sounds interesting! And, it took #ANationOfThieves to devise a plan to swindle art collectors out of millions of dollars. #SoaringScores
