Amazon.com description: Product Description: The Arts of Collecting: Padre Sebastiano Resta and the Market for Drawings in Early Modern Europe examines the collecting of art works through an anthropological examination of modes of exchange and the social roles of material culture. Warwick illuminates a crucial chapter in the history of collecting, that of the migration of art objects out of Italy to northern Europe in the eighteenth century. Her study pins the history of collecting to broader European economic changes and analyzes the epistemological frameworks for viewing that accompanied this transfer of artistic wealth.
