Reviews - What do customers think about A Passion for Collecting: Decorating with Art and Antiques?

A passion beyond colecting.  Jul 21, 2005
The author takes us for a visit to collectors homes, and allows us to have a look at their private assembly of objects, paintings and sculptures they are passionate about. We can view the art in its context, we can see the juxtaposition of objects and furniture as these are being used by its owners, without pretending, revealing more than just the art. We get a glimps at the interior design and decor layered just as life puts them together. Only real collectors can possibly understand the mania they are infected with, not being able to resist amassing
the fetishes of their desire.
