Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0878466959, Hardcover)Perhaps best known as the man whose boat America3 won the 1992 America's Cup race, businessman William I. Koch has been a discerning speculator in his world-class collections of art, wine, and firearms. This lavishly illustrated catalogue includes major 19th-century artworks by Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cazanne, and Bunker; images of the American West by Remington and Russell; marine paintings and maritime arts, including an outstanding selection of ship models; and great works of the 20th century by Matisse, Picasso, Dal', Modigliani, Maillol, Arp, and others--as well as such rarities as a bottle of Chateau Lafitte once owned by Thomas Jefferson and the pistol that shot Jesse James. Featuring critical discussions of each aspect of the Koch Collection, and reproductions of nearly 200 objects, Things I Love showcases the substance and personality that run through this vast and eclectic collection, one that places Koch in the heady company of American cultural benefactors like Isabella Stewart Gardner, Peggy Guggenheim, and John Pierpont Morgan.
