Encounters with Modern Art chronicles the formation of a distinguished collection of early 20th-century art through the reminiscences of Nannette F. Rothschild. Tales of extensive dealings and evolving friendships with artists, dealers, fellow collectors, conservators, curators and museum directors in Europe and America paint their own picture of the adventures facing collectors at the midpoint of this century. The book is illustrated with color plates of 92 works and 95 black and white illustrations and is supplemented by an introductory essay that places the Rothschilds' involvements in a broader context. The result is a provocative and uncommonly personal glimpse into the world of art collecting.
