- DescriptionThis is the story of how a fabled art foundation-the greatest collection of impressionist and postimpressionist art in America, including 69 Cezannes, 60 Matisses, and 44 Picassos, among many priceless others-came to be, and how more than a decade of legal squabbling brought it to the brink of collapse and to a move that many believe betrayed the wishes of the founder, Dr. Albert C. Barnes (1872-1951). Art Held Hostage is w updated with a new epilogue by the author covering the current state of this international treasure and the endless battle over its fate.
