Description: This is the story of how a fabled art foundation—the greatest collection of impressionist and postimpressionist art in America—came to be, and how more than a decade of legal squabbling brought it to the brink of collapse and to a move that many believe betrayed the wishes of the founder. Art Held Hostage has been described by Time magazine as “the indispensable history of the Barnes” and by the Los Angeles Times as “the definitive account of the saga.” The Washington Post hailed it “as a substantial work of reporting and historical research” and referred to it as “John Anderson’s excellent book.” Now with a new and updated epilogue, theauthor details the current state of this international treasure.
