"A superb read. While this book certainly defines the Walters, it goes much further...it best addresses the nature of post-Civil War art collecting. It speaks of the rise to wealth, power, and position of a whole class of entrepreneurs in the post-Civil War period and addresses the entire historic, economic, and social life ob Baltimore in the mid- and late nineteenth century." --William H. Gerdts, City University of New York, author of American Impressionism
