Debra Rhodes Smith con Tales of Art Beyond the Frame
A memoir of anecdotes relating to things that happened along the way to a savvy gal while running a 34 year career as a Fine Art Advisor and Appraiser. How a Monet painting at auction shocked the audience at Sotheby's; what seemed like a simple case for an appraisal turned into a case involving the FBI, IRS and Insurance Commissioner; a presentation in Miami evolved into a day of living challenges and how Mr. Right was discovered while compiling a major corporate collection, these are just a few of the "Tales" told. All tales are true, witty, poignant, intelligent, informative, sophisticated, and a fresh perspective of the often mysterious world of art.
