Book-Notes---Boom--Mad-Money-2

The Toledo Museum of Art’s Art Book Club will discuss the non-fiction work Boom: Mad Money, Mega Dealers and the Rise of
Contemporary Art
, a thoughtful look inside the world of art collectors and how taste and ungodly amounts of money have built a self-perpetuating market. Author Michael Shnayerson follows the international art trade through its obsessions with post-war paintings, modern art impressionism, pop art superstars and contemporary sculpture. With works by Hockney selling for $90 million, and Warhols going for $105 million, Boom works to expose the underbelly of the art world’s biggest collectors. Follow the money.
