This is the story of two sisters, Etta and Claribel Cone, who travelled the world collecting art in the early twentieth century. When they died their collection became the Cone Collection at the Baltimore Museum of Art, and it is one of the most significant collections of modern art in the world. The inclusion of illustrations by the author as well as reproductions of the major artists of the time makes the book a visual pleasure in addition to its educational strength.
