Visionary collectors, William and John Spaulding amassed some of the world’s most remarkable American and European paintings, Japanese prints, and World War I posters, and played a crucial role in shaping our cultural heritage. This well-illustrated volume gathers 100 of their most important acquisitions, many published for the first time, and tells the unknown story of the Spauldings and their legacy.
