Summary

The reasons why people collect art are no doubt as simple and as complex as the reasons why people fall in love. The New York collector Joe Cohen has been quietly amassing a stupendous art collection for four decades, excluding no medium or subject, for the love of art, and its acquisition. The Cohen Family Collection is vast, but also very personal, often with a tale behind each work. Among the highlights of this collection are paintings by Tiepolo, Degas, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall, Balthus, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, Joan Mitchell and David Hockney, and photographs by Atget, Dorothea Lange, Irving Penn, Avedon, Sugimoto and Chuck Close. Edited by Ray Merritt, this massive celebration of the collection illustrates many of the works in situ, and, through informative and entertaining commentary, casts light on their diversity and significance.
