A valuable work of art is today s new intellectual currency. Modern art draws attention from a new jet set: for media moguls, hedge-fund managers, and Hollywood darlings, collecting is the entree into an exclusive global community. Internationally vaunted art dealers Philippe Segalot and Franck Giraud build and break collections every day for high-profile art collectors. In The Impossible Collection, Segalot and Giraud curate the ideal modern collection a collection in which money is no object and anything is possible. Whether locked into a museum's collection or available at the tip of a paddle, these works form a unique perspective on the greatest art achievements of the our century, illuminated in the introduction by Joachim Pissarro, great-grandson of Camille and a curator of painting and sculpture at New York s Museum of Modern Art.
