Title: Heart in Art : A Life in Paintings
Author: Johnson, Peter
Price: Not Available
Description: Foreword by Dr Christopher Brown. London: Bene Factum, 2010. 27cm., hardcover, 176pp. illus., most in color. Summary: he fact that picture dealing is in the author's genetic make-up becomes apparent very early in this delightful book. Peter Johnson records the inside story of 50 years of the London art market and his part in some of the most interesting deals of his generation. But the art market isn't just about pictures, it's also about the people who buy and sell them. Heart in Art portrays a rich cast of characters. Through the doors of his gallery have walked (and subsequently onto the pages of Heart in Art) any number of royalty, dukes, prime ministers, auctioneers, international businessmen, contemporary artists, European nobility, sculptors, academics, and even the wife of an American president – some were buyers, some sellers and others just popped into his office. Each has a part in Peter's story and each enlivens this book.
