Meet Robert Landau, the Man Who Stood Up for Art
Robert Landau stood up for the integrity of art and artists when his gallery in Montreal, did their homework and discovered that they had in their possession Robert Klee's stolen work, Portrait in the Garden.
Here we find Robert being interviewed on Russian Art Media, TV. Its a good interview, and well worthy of the ten minutes or so it takes to view. Robert engages in a reflective, thoughtful, examination of his attitudes and opinions on art.
This is how the Landau Fine Arts website describes the interview:
"In this interview, filmed at TEFAF art fair in March 2009 Robert Landau talks about his family, encounters with Henry Moore, Alberto Giacometti, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, financial crysis and what it means for the art market. He also advises young collectors on where and how to start."
Its yours to view and enjoy. Please click here.
Robert's picture and interview description were extracted from the Landau Fine Arts, website.
