“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time, ” said Thomas Merton. Alex Wengraf, the London fine art dealer in question here, has certainly found himself in some strange places (and lost a few things in his time), but the one thing that has always been constant in his life is his love of art.

Memories of a London Fine Art Dealer is the distillation of a lifetime’s experience and expertise in the art world. Neither an autobiography nor a traditional memoir, the book consists of reflections, anecdotes, telling conversations, encounters, touches of humour and a choice selection of the triumphs and disasters, heroes and villains encountered by an accidental art dealer.
