Book Description Holt, Rinehart and Winston (1961) 1st ed, New York, 1961. HC. B&W illustrations (illustrator). 518pp What makes the price of a picture go up or down? The ultimate causes of a fashion are frequently lost in the mists of time, but at least the record of the saleroom remains. The first section of Gerald Reitlinger's book traces the history of taste over the past two hundred years, not only in the salerooms but in the studios of painters and in collectors' homes. In the second part of the book the works of several hundred painters of all schools and periods are grouped in separate alphabetical lists with short introductions so that the reader can see at a glance how prices have moved through the years. Those who are fascinated by the apparently endlessly rising prices in the saleroom at the present day will receive many surprises from these lists. good, maroon cloth (hardcover) no dustjacket.

III p. 345 laid in.

Frontispiece and 7 plates to volume 1, frontispiece and 4 plates to volume 2. Ownership inscription to front pastedown of volume 2. First edition, first impression, of Reitlinger's best known work, his study of the French art market. "Reitlinger's interest in this subject was prompted by what he considered to be the decline of taste in art, which he attributed to a redistribution of wealth and to the inflated price of individual reputation" (ODNB). Educated at Oxford and the Slade School, Reitlinger travelled extensively in the the Near East and Asia in the 1920s and 30s, participating in the excavations at Kish and Hira, and appearing in Robert Byron's account of his excursion to Athos, The Station, under the name of Reinecker. During this period he began his remarkable collection of Syrian and Persian pottery of the Timurid, Isnik, and Safavid periods, which he expanded throughout his life, and which now forms a key part of the Ashmolean Ceramic Collection. Reitlinger became famous after the Second World War for his studies of the Holocaust - The Final Solution, and The SS Alibi of a Nation. Bookseller Inventory # 117221
