Alexander Reid was 'a prince among dealers' whose energy, enthusiasm and judgement shaped the artistic tastes of his day. A friend and champion of Whistler and Van Gogh - to whom the red-bearded Glaswegian bore such a resemblance that the Dutch artist's painting of him was long mistaken for a self-portrait - he went on to promote the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists. With 94 colour illustrations, this first-ever biography charts the life and work of this important and influential figure.
