The Art of Collecting Art. Ernst Gombrich. December 2, 1982 Issue. For this learned but lively tome, based on his Mellon Lectures of 1978, Mr. Joseph Alsop has devised a title page which is anything but self-explanatory. The Rare Art Traditions are so named by him because they are the exception rather than the rule in man’s attitude to the visual arts. It is this conception that the author finds represented in only five distinct cultural traditions, that is, in the ancient world, in China with an offshoot in Japan, in the civilization of Islam, and, of course, in Western societies since the dawn of the Italian Renaissance. How many of his readers will find this fact as startling as he asserts it to be may be hard to tell. After all, the divorce between the crafts and the arts has been the subject of frequent debate in the past.

This book was recommended to me and though it is quite a thick tome, I found it to be an engaging and insightful read on both art and psychology. If you've ever wondered what art was valued by the rich of Roman and Renaissance times you will know after reading this book.

This is a monumental opus by the well-known journalist, the late Joseph Alsop. I found it a comprehensive work and an excellent reference, and am very glad to add it to my library.

The book was a revalation to me. I'd been searching for some text to explain the origins of the art trade. A shocking breadth of study.
