From New York to London, Brussels to Los Angeles and Sao Paolo to Monaco, the private residences of the greatest and most illustrious names in the art world boast some of the world’s most outstanding art collections. Antique masterpieces, modern chefs d’oeuvre, and contemporary creations are set against exquisite–and at times audacious–interiors exuding bold, unique style. Written by Tiqui Atencio Demirdjian, a leading collector of modern and contemporary art and twentieth-century design, For Art’s Sake gives readers unprecedented access to the homes of 24 of the world’s most prestigious art dealers.
This volume grants readers exclusive access to these houses and gives life to enthralling contrasts, echoes, and unexpected dialogues by juxtaposing unparalleled art collections with interiors designed by renowned names, such as Annabel Selldorf, Peter Marino, François Marcq, Jacques Grange, Toshiko Mori and many more.
The result is a gallery of striking beauty, most of which is revealed to the public eye for the very first time and captured by photographer Jean-François Jaussaud. Tiqui Atencio Demirdjian’s texts guide the reader through these private spaces, while excerpts from exclusive interviews with the spaces’ owners such as Dominique Lévy, Brett Gorvy, Almine Rech Picasso, Barbara Gladstone, Kamel Mennour, and Axel and May Vervoordt, enrich this must-have volume for all lovers of art and design.
