Richard Brown Baker (1912–2002) began collecting works by emerging artists in the 1940s, becoming one of the first collectors tonbsp;embrace both Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art.nbsp;He eventually amassed a collectionnbsp;of more than 1,600 works from the postwar period,nbsp;including works by such groundbreakingnbsp;American artistsnbsp;as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Chuck Close, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Morris, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and James Rosenquist, as well as European and Asian artists such as Alberto Burri, Jean Dubuffet, Georges Mathieu, and Kurt Schwitters.nbsp; Baker bequeathed the majority of his collection to the Yale University Art Gallery, and the balance to the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design. Highlighting 130 works, this is the first complete history of Baker's important collection. Essays by renowned art historiansnbsp;contextualize each of the five decades of Baker's collecting efforts, while entries on individual artists illustrate the remarkable scope of Baker's holdings. Throughout the publication, firsthand accounts from Baker's extensive personal journals describe his collecting activities within the dynamic New York art scene of the day.
