The Empress and I explores a unique alliance between two brilliant women.

The book vividly describes how a treasure trove of modern art, now worth billions, was acquired for a relatively modest sum in the 1970s. Its author is a former New York Museum of Modern Art curator who served as an art advisor to the Empress of Iran. She cites numerous personal and previously confidential documents, including reports and extensive communications with artists, art dealers, auction houses and notable museum colleagues.
