How Art Dealers Make History

ARTINFO | Posted 12.19.2011 | Arts

Richard Polsky's new book, "The Art Prophets: The Artists, Dealers, and Tastemakers Who Shook the Art World," which has just come out from Other Press, focuses on people with visionary abilities who, as he puts it, "snatched something out of the wind and conjured up a hurricane that redirected the art scene." In this entertaining book of essays, Polsky has profiled ten of these "prophets" and the movements they helped launch during the last 60 years or so.
