The Art of Acquiring: A Portrait of Etta and Claribel Cone
The Cone sisters, two expatriate Victorian women living in Paris, led the way in purchasing the avant-garde art of Matisse, Picasso, and others, amassing one of the largest, most important art collections in the world. This is their story, told in a highly readable style. Includes a small selection of photos and illustrations. In 1949 Etta and Claribel Cone donated their vast, invaluable collection to The Baltimore Museum of Art.
