By Sarah Thornton

The chief currency of the art world is not dollars or Swiss francs: it is a much more elusive value-credibility. Hailed for her powers of observation, Sarah Thornton reveals how the world's most celebrated artists understand that their art involves not just the objects they create but the entire way they play their game. Going behind the scenes, 33 Artists in 3 Acts investigates artists' psyches, personas, politics, and social networks as means through which they attain recognition. Like her bestselling Seven Days in the Art World, Thornton's captivating narrative offers a perceptive exploration into creativity at the highest levels.

Paperback, 448 pages.

Author Sarah Thornton will be at the Museum on Saturday, March 11, 2017 for Conversation: Field Guide to the Art World, part of the Milwaukee Collects: Collecting Series.
