Book Synopsis

The Missing Masterpiece is a satirical spoof on the snobbish world of art collectors. Ian Callinan uses his insider knowledge to have some wicked fun at the expense of our State art galleries. He exposes a nexus of self-serving politicians, a gallery director's lust for power and prestige, and a fair amount of gossip, intrigue and fraud. We follow the farcical adventures of a hapless innocent in this devious world as he sleuths away in his quest for the missing masterpiece.

Anyone who has ever wondered how the experts decide what hangs on the walls of our State art galleries will love this book.
