Rogue's Gallery - The Sotheby’s expert on the gullible rich and a multi-billion dollar international art market
Philip Hook takes the lid off the world of art dealing through the ages to reveal the brilliance, cunning, greed and daring of its practitioners. From its beginnings in Antwerp, where paintings were sometimes sold by weight, to the rich hauteur of the contemporary gallery in London, Philip Hook’s history is one of human folly, greed and duplicity, interspersed with ingenuity, inspiration and acts of heroism.
