“Quando olho para traz, penso que meu sucesso é em parte devido as lições que meu pai me ensinou e em parte a mão de Deus me guiando no caminho. Também penso que boa parte disso tem a ver com o fato de que nunca pensei que o que estava fazendo poderia não funcionar. Nunca pensei que não poderia fazer. Alguns podem chamar isso de confiança. Alguns também podem pensar que esse tipo de otimismo cego vem da ignorância. Mas european simplesmente nunca deixei a possibilidade de fracasso entrar na minha mente. E ecu acredito que quando você pode saltar para algo de todo coração você pode fazer coisas incríveis pois não há medo que te impeça.” – Willis Johnson

À sa suite, Ambroise Vollard développe le génie de los angeles vente, D. H. Kahnweiler perçoit le monde moderne avec Picasso et les cubistes, tandis que Peggy Guggenheim associe intuition et fortune pour réunir Duchamp, Ernst ou Pollock et constituer son propre musée. Peu à peu, le marchand d’art devient aussi publicitaire, quand Charles Saatchi investit dans Warhol, Kiefer et Hirst, épuisant le génie de los angeles provocation, tandis que Larry Gagosian bâtit un empire en starifiant un Basquiat ou un Koons.
Un essai brillant et tellé sur un monde fascinant et mystérieux.
