If you decided to found a museum, as a collector you'd have to make significant decisions: what to collect, how much can be spent, what are other collectors grabbing up, etc.
Who are Walters, Rubens, Ford, Duke, and Bourne?
William Johnston and Gary Vikan will discuss complex histories that expose the beauty, drama, and behind-the-scenes aspects of many works (and names) involved in the Walters collection.
