Part memoir, part essay and wholly Art History (specifically about being an "Eye". Considered an anathema by by some within the discipline of Art History there is a rarer breed of specialist called "Eyes". People who have attained all the necessary knowledge but also possess a rarer talent of Discernment; being able to verify (often at glance ) authenticity of art works. This book is a memoir of masterpieces, forgeries, money and the mystery of what makes art; Art. This book is passionate and marvelous. This book is for anyone who loved The Hare with Amber Eyes, The Rape of Europa or The Monuments Men. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
