The Whitney Women
Flora Miller Biddle
The Whitney Women and the Museum They Made: A Family Memoir
New York: Arcade Publishing,1999.
Flora's autobiography describes her inheriting in 1967 the art museum created by her grandmother Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and her own mother.
The development of their family passion for art not only changed the lives of their contemporaries, but guided the art world of New York to look away from Europe and develop America's subsequent dominance of modern art.
