The memoirs of Nannette Rothschild are the basis for this unique exhibition catalogue, which chronicles the formation of her and her husband Herbert Rothschild’s distinguished collection of early twentieth-century art. Through adventures and evolving friendships with artists, dealers, fellow collectors, conservators, and curators in Europe and America, the Rothschilds affirmed their inexhaustible enthusiasm for Cubist, Futurist, Dadaist, and Surrealist works, as well as for the artists themselves. Along with an introductory essay that places the Rothschilds’ involvement in a broader context, their stories provide a provocative and uncommonly personal glimpse into the world of art collecting.
