A beautifully written biography of one of the founding figures in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art's history.
Lindsay Hughes Cooper came to prominence during a time when women were rarely welcomed in the inner sanctum of the art world. Born in a small Midwestern town in the early twentieth century, Lindsay, with persistence and determination, became an authority on Asian art. This biography tells the story of a complex and accomplished woman.
