A fabulous read , combing art history, class prejudice in England and Scotland and European history. It reads like a detective story and describes works of art in a most informative and authoritative way . It opens your eyes to life in the Spanish court at the time of Velasquez ,of 18th century Britain and 19th century America and the way an obsession can ruin a life.The art market is revealed for what it is too.
