Well, by golly, the long-awaited book was well worth the wait. I’m only about 100 pages in, and can hardly wait until evening when I can get back to it. All these years as an art appraiser, I know a lot, but Bernard knows a heck of a lot more, and has certainly had (sought out) much more varied experiences than I have. Besides the autographed copy directly from the author (thank you, such kind words…) we’ve ordered another half dozen to hand out to clients and to perhaps the most knowledgeable dealer here, who will find that it reinforces all his beliefs and experience, as it does mine, and that he’ll learn from it as well. Wish I’d had this book 28 years ago!
