The revised and extended BMW Art Guide by Independent Collectors presents nearly 300 private collections of contemporary art accessible to the public -- featuring large and small, famous and the relatively unknown. Succinct portraits of the collections with countless color illustrations take the reader to more than forty countries, often to regions or urban districts that are off the beaten path. This practical guide is a collaborative publication stemming from the partnership between BMW and Independent Collectors, the international online platform for collectors of contemporary art. To date, neither the Internet nor any book has ever contained a comparable assembly of international private collections, including several that have opened their doors to art lovers and connoisseurs for the first time.
