Johnson, William R. William and Henry Walters, The Reticent Collectors. Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2001.
Annotation / Notes: The collections of William and Henry Walters are the core which forms Baltimore's Walters Art Museum . Both father and son had a great influence on the development of American art museums. They were both active in other institutions. The author argues that Henry Walters' collecting differs from that of his contemporaries because he always intended for the collection to become a public resource. This work is heavily documented, easy to read, and well illustrated.
