The past and present of a vibrant arts community. From its first days as a tropical island resort, Palm Beach has attracted artists, collectors, patrons, and dealers. Founded by Henry Morrison Flagler, the art-loving oil baron, in the late nineteenth century, Palm Beach quickly attracted notables of the art world seeking inspiration and society. Palm Beach Visual Arts explores the incredible story of the island and its painters-including Salvador Dali and Marcel Duchamp-architects, potters, and photographers, as well as the luminaries and doyens who forged the art scene and organizations that still thrive today. This lavishly illustrated portrait explores Palm Beach as a prominent and influential locus for the arts.
