The work is a detailed account of John Quinn’s life beginning from 1870 to his death in 1924. Quinn began undertaking art collection soon after the establishment of his law practice in New York City. It was there he befriended several people who influence and shape his art collection in the future. He pursued a path in patronage to modern art, and specifically found a fascination with European and Parisian art. Quinn forms lasting relationships with the artists he encountered and amassed a valuable and sizable collection of painting and sculptures––despite the limitations of his modest income.
