Love Thomas Hoving's tell-all style and insider view of the art world. He does not point out the Wildenstine's as heartless money-grubbers, which makes me wonder how well Hoving knew them or if he was simply covering up for them due to his affiliation with Medieval art and their involvement with stolen illuminated manuscripts from other Jewish collectors who did not survive WWII.
