Etta and Claribel Cone had an eye for art that was unparalleled at their time, and they left Baltimore what is perhaps the best gift the city has ever received: their collection.

This is a fascinating book, and the narrator does all right, even though it often sounds like she's speed-reading, as long as the sisters Cone stay in the United States. But once they go abroad, there's at least one cringe per page for the listener. This book needs a reader who can pronounce words in several languages.
Story is very interesting-you not only learn about the Cone sisters but also the many artists and notables in their circle. I wish the narration was better done-it was a bit stiff and somewhat poorly recorded.
