Summary
"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, van Gogh, Monet, Hokusai, and O'Keeffe wound up where they did is a colorful tale of American art collecting. The fifty museums in A Love for the Beautiful offer uniquely personal art-viewing experiences for both business and pleasure travelers."--
