"Art can tell a story about who you are, what you were interested in at the time, and where you are headed," O'Brien explains. "This circa 1950 Francis Bacon painting study marks a moment when I was moving into a more serious level of collecting, buying work by modern masters. I bought the worn first edition of Berenice Abbott’s book Changing New York in a junk shop years ago, when I was just starting out. To me, the book is just as meaningful as the painting."
