James Stourton's survey of Post-War art collectors and their collections. Since 1945 the scope of collecting has expanded, with the focus shifting from the European art of the Renaissance and Impressionists to a more global and contemporary outlook. Collectors featured include the Rothschilds, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Francois Pinault, Stavros Niarchos, the Mellons, the Wrightsmans and the Rockefellers, Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza, Roland Penrose, Alistair McAlpine, Charles Saatchi, Daniel Katz, Giovanni Agnelli and Franco Maria Ricci. Many of the collectors contributed personally to the book.
