Publisher's Summary

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.

Ouch!

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.

Great story on a rare topic

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.
