Could Have, Would Have, Should Have Inside the World of the Art Collector by Tiqui Atencio

The Buying & Selling Of Art | Drama and Tragedy

Atencio introduces us to a group of collectors who have shaped their passion for collecting.

As a series of intimate portraits, drama, and tragedy unfold in each collector’s life. Each chapter begins with a collector’s love story about how they first began to collect art. We learn about their successes and failures in bidding for art.

Ultimately, the book addresses how we make sense of our relationship with art and why some people collect more than others.
