BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors

The BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors presents more than 160 private collections of contemporary art that are open to the public—both large and small, prominent and little known. Succinct portraits of the collections and numerous color illustrations take the reader to over thirty countries, often to out-of-the-way regions or urban districts. This practical guide is the first publication to be coproduced by BMW and the Independent Collectors, the international online network for collectors of contemporary art. Collectors, dealers, artists, and journalists contributed to the extensive research required for the compilation of this new standard work. A comparable list of international private collections has never before been assembled, either in book form or on the Internet, and some of these collections are opening their doors for the first time to art lovers and experts.
