Summary
"The Art of Wealth: The Huntingtons in the Gilded Age focuses on four remarkable individuals: Collis Huntington, who started out as a peddler and went on to found a railroad empire; his second wife, Arabella, a woman of great intelligence and taste; her son, Archer, who devoted his life to creating and supporting museums; and Collis's nephew, Henry E. Huntington, who built up an extraordinary foundation, the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, and gave it to the public as an enduring legacy."--book jacket
