Quotes from the book

“They say that art comes from the soul, the more drama in an artist’s life the more he can drawn on for his art. Van Gogh and Picasso had troubled souls, but poor Steve Kaufman has been shot once, stabbed 3 times – all by women – that is a lot of drama for great art.”
~Robin Leach

“If an artist is well known in life, he will become more famous in death, Van Gogh, Dali, Picasso, Warhol, and Lichtenstein never saw their art in auction houses commanding the high prices while their were alive. As an art collector with many millions of dollars in antiques over the last thirty years, I consider Steve Kaufman art work to be the most collectible and having possibility of appreciation of anything, included gold, jewelry, silver and other commodities that have risen dramatically in the last year and seen those same commodities drop in value in the past 5 months but Kaufman’s value has risen.”
~ Don Specter

“When my son was 11 years old, we met Pablo Picasso, he was asking me out to dinner in front of my son (Steve), Pablo was such a ladies man at that time.

~ Ann Kaufman mother of Steve Kaufman

~ John Paul Loop, Art Collector.

“You could buy a Picasso today, but the secret was to buy a Picasso when Picasso was alive at a fraction of today’s prices… but you can still buy a Kaufman painting today very reasonably”
~ Leonard Lauren of Ralph Lauren / Polo clothes ~ Art Collector
