Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Sited high on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River Gorge, Maryhill Museum of Art is one of the most unusual and enchanting museums in America. The Museum was founded by four friends: the philanthropist and entrepreneur Samuel Hill; Queen Marie of Roumania; the early modern dancer, Loie Fuller; and San Francisco's Alma de Bretteville Spreckels. Together they turned a mansion into a world-class museum of art. The book tells the unlikely story of the four founders. The diverse collections — from Auguste Rodin sculpture, Russian icons, and French fashion mannequins to Native American artifacts and chess sets — richly illustrate their legacy.
