Summary
Muse offers an inside view of the development of a contemporary Australia art collection. Janet Holmes a Court, in conversation about art and the intense interest she shared with her late husband Robert from the 1960s, offers a rationale-along with an emotional soundtrack-for the 146 works she singles out from a collection of more than 5000 artworks. Janet discusses these selections with Terri-ann White in the racks where they are stored and in domestic spaces where they hang. This is an illuminating book about a passion for art and expression, a deep affinity and curiosity about artists and how they make things
