Review of Could Have Should Have Would Have

For Art Sake Book Inside the Homes of Art Dealers touring the art filled homes of gallerists and dealers. It is like a hand coloured atlas or a lavish birding - guide hinting at the riches of a larger experience without nudging the reader off the couch... Passion for art and design is clear throughout the book & Atencio Demirdjian makes the case that collectors can be adventurous decorators as well!

Review of For Art's Sake Inside the Homes of Art Dealers

 A testament to her fidelity, the collector was granted access into the little or never-before-seen homes of art world titans like Gavin Brown, Sean Kelly, Dominique Lévy, Paula Cooper, Jeffrey Deitch, Iwan and Manuela Wirth, and Xavier Hufkens and Pierre Marie Giraud. Locations range from Barbara Gladstone’s four-story Chelsea townhouse to Almine Rech’s Brussels villa and Iwan and Manuela Wirth’s “home away from home” in the Scottish Highlands
