From Library Journal:

An engaging book about the genesis and development of the premier collection of American decorative arts. Cantor, head of the American paintings department at Christie's, captures the spirit and character of Henry Francis du Pont, discusses the collecting of Americana in the first half of the 20th century, and provides a general overview of the vast collections now at Winterthur. There is much social history here as well as a generously illustrated selection of the finest objects in the collection. The photographs are excellent. This is not a scholarly catalog, such as those by Downs or Montgomery, but a general introduction to a collection and to a place without equal. Highly recommended for general collections. Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Libs.
