Lincoln Dexter con Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector
Throughout history artists have collected objects for professional and private reasons. Picasso, for example, collected African and Oceanic art; Walker Evans amassed a huge collection of postcards depicting ordinary Americans; and Matisse was an avid collector of exotic textiles and furniture. This book takes a look at the private collecting habits of modern and contemporary artists including Arman, Peter Blake, Hanne Darboven, Edmund de Waal, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Martin Parr, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Andy Warhol, Pae White, Martin Wong and Danh Vo.
