The first history of art dealing in the U.S., following the profession from 18th-cent. portrait & picture salesmen in the colonies to the high-profile gallery owners of today. Provides biographies of the prominent dealers from more than two cent. of trade, & includes: Michael Paff, who sold faux Old Master paintings to major collectors in the early 19th cent.; Joseph Duveen, dealer to magnates like Henry Clay Frick; & visionary Leo Castelli, who helped to usher in a revolution in modern art during the 1960s by showing such artists as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg & Andy Warhol. The Amer. art trade, while male-dominated, has been galvanized by female dealers such as Edith Gregor Halpert, Peggy Guggenheim, & Mary Boone. Illustrations.
