Overview

An intimate glimpse into the life of Ursula Hauser, collector and cofounder of the major international gallery Hauser & Wirth

In the 1980s, Ursula Hauser began quietly building what has become one of the world's most impressive private collections of modern and contemporary art, acquiring works from Louise Bourgeois, Carol Rama, Alina Szapocznikow, Franz West and many others. In 1992, she cofounded one of today's most important galleries, Hauser & Wirth. This book presents the first-ever extensive account of her life and art collection.

More than a straightforward biography, The Inner Mirror reads like an intimate conversation with a highly intelligent friend. Hauser recounts her discovery and support of artists such as Pipilotti Rist, Roni Horn and Paul McCarthy, as well as her acquisitions of the estates of artists such as Eve Hesse, Lee Lozano and Francis Picabia.

Interspersed with photographs of Hauser at artist's homes or studios, this volume provides invaluable insight into the life and work of one of today's finest gallerists and collectors.
