Product Description

In this little gem of a book Patrick Parrish of the eponymous Patrick Parrish Gallery in New York offers advice, stories, gossip and pointers on how to go about acquiring top quality art and design from flea markets to the top auction houses in the world. With over 25 years of hard-won experience in the trenches as a picker, a collector, and dealer he tells you what to do, what not to do, and how to negotiate the often-confusing labyrinths that the international galleries, auction houses, and even flea markets can put forth.
Hailed by The New York Times as "one of the top dealers in the world for cutting-edge contemporary design", Parrish holds nothing back, providing a unique outlook into what is sometimes, for good reason, a secretive and cliquish world. Often what you don't do or say is more important than what you do do or say, and Parrish gives insider perspective on what dealers and auction house experts want to see and hear from their prospective clients.
