Other Objects of Desire; Collectors and Collecting Queerly explores gay identities and identifications as they are communicated in and through art, and provides a critical approach to the study of collectors and collecting. From Jean de Berry to the internet addict, from Christina of Sweden to Andy Warhol, this collection of essays sets about questioning the terms and methodologies of gay or queer historical studies and the very nature and definition of collecting. Richly illustrated, scholarly and bold, this anthology respresents the work of both young and established Art Historians in trenchant, original and groundbreaking style.
