Palm Beach Daily News
“Deborah Pollack’s latest magnum opus, Palm Beach Visual Art, is elegant, scholarly, and most significant.” --Molly Charland, Director of Education at the Society of the Four Arts
"Deborah C. Pollack, a gifted writer, art historian, and art dealer has provided readers with Vintage Miami Beach Glamour: Celebrities and Socialites in the Heyday of Chic [The History Press], a penetrating look into the … high society world of the Beach. Pollack draws on the written insights of the urbane, charismatic French count [George Le Pelley du Manoir] to examine and explain the evolution of the famed resort through the activities and relationships, sometimes scandalous, often fraught, of its wealthiest, most entitled visitors whose ranks ranged from Winston Churchill to Elizabeth Taylor. Heretofore, we knew of their presence primarily through society and gossip columns. But the count’s written observations—some appearing in newsletters and magazines—bring their lives (and his) in the winter playground into sharp relief. ... Further, the author’s judicious employment of photographs, especially those of these reclusive visitors, embellishes her rich narrative."
