Book DescriptionThis shocking blow-by-blow account chronicles the rise and fall of international art dealer Tod Volpe who, at the height of his success, had a clientele that included such stars as Andy Warhol, Barbra Streisand, Bruce Willis, and Jack Nicholson. He is known as the man behind the Mission arts and crafts craze of the 1970s. Volpe details how his life spiraled out of control in the 1990s and erupted in the scandalous fraud accusations that earned him two years in federal prison. This revelation into the shadowy world of art dealing exposes how high culture and civility conceal boardroom swindling, illegal pricefixing, and money laundering.
