Insights from Ann Getty; “The Art of the Collector and Collecting”

“I am incredibly grateful to Ann for her personal responses to my Q&A, regarding both her collection and collecting.  

This interview was to be the last she gave before her sudden death and I am honoured to have been part of her life and to have had such an extraordinary woman to learn from and to call ‘friend’. 

The world will be a duller place without her vision and creativity!”

Virginia Sykes-Wright
