9780380501205: Provenance

Provenance is a fascinating adventure through the international art world, a world where artists and collectors hide behind masterpieces, and sell their souls to the highest bidder. A New York Times bestseller and sold in twelve international editions, Provenance – based on true events – tells the story of massive Nazi art looting of valuable paintings during World War II. From the elegance of Sotheby Park Bernet auctions to the decadence of Parisian nightlife, art detective Alex Drach moves through a gallery of glamorous and sinister characters on his search for stolen paintings -- a search that will lead to the dark catacombs of Rome, back to one of the most shameful secrets of World War II, and the horrifying key to his own elusive past.

About the Author:

Frank McDonald was born in Michigan, raised in France and England, educated at the University of Notre Dame, University of Chicago and Oxford University. In 1967, he was appointed Executive Administrator of the Independent Republic of Anguilla in the West Indies. Thereafter, he became a Fellow of the Institute of Current World Affairs covering the Caribbean and Cuba where he taught at the University of Havana. In Cuba, he was arrested, charged with espionage, imprisoned, and held in solitary confinement for 15 months. After his release he lectured at the New School of Social Research. In 1972, he found an old ruin in Kinsale, Ireland, which he restored while researching and writing Provenance. In 1995, he became CEO of Biomatrix, a biological counter terrorism consulting group to federal, state and local government agencies. Afterward, he lived on Block Island, Rhode Island and curated the Spring Street Art Gallery. He now resides in Boston with his life partner, Elizabeth Gavett.
