About the Book
For over 60 years, he lived in Greenwich Village, the heart of New York City, with his wife Rosemary, two sons, Harry and Luke, and is where they amassed one of the world’s most important collections of primitive art.
Known for their “keen eye” in the art collecting world, George and Rosemary started acquiring art in the 1960s on installments (at one point owing money to almost every great art dealer in Manhattan).
Their love story, and their love of art, will inspire you to experience “The Shock of the Old.”
