Some of the country’s best art is hidden in plain sight, in museums largely unknown outside their regions. How works by masters like Rembrandt, Rodin, Picasso, and O'Keeffe wound up where they did is a colorful tale of American art collecting. It's the story of patrician families who acquired masterworks, self-made millionaires who applied their business skills to the art world, and discerning collectors who promoted new artists. Each of the fifty museums profiled in this book offers a uniquely personal, intimate art-viewing experience.
