ConversationsArtists and collectors

Nathalie Guiot - Conversations
Crossed interviews with artists and their collectors.
“This book is a gallery of portraits. It sketches a subjective and non-exhaustive typology of the collector. Who collects? Why do they collect? What is a collection? "Being a collector is a vocation, it is neither a job, nor a hobby, nor or a feather in your hat", wrote Pierre Assouline quoting Roger Dutilleul, a great admirer of Braque and Picasso. Throughout these personal conversations between internationally renowned artists and their collectors, the reader will discover their commitment to the creation of art.” (Nathalie Guiot)
