So Who Is Arturo Schwarz You Ask?

These photos of Arturo, Joyce and Demetrio were taken after we'd been given a tour of Arturo's temperature-controlled personal library of 40'000 books and of the house, which was covered floor to ceiling in the most sensational art imaginable. A Picasso here, a Picabia, there, oh one or two Pissaros... Duchamp was his close friend. My friends are this impressive too. I fingered his Man Ray Metronome (yes I touched it). And he had Trotsky's calling card framed, as he was supposed to meet him, but Trotsky was murdered two weeks before their date.

Check back tomorrow to see the inside of the house and learn more!
