Louse MacBain is moving into pole position in the international world of art media. The purchase of Art + Auction last year by MacBain has already much improved the visual presentation of the journal, a notable form manual for the art markets. A Harvard graduate who wisely now vows 'not to mix money and love', she is now prospecting alone in not entirely virgin territory - the 24 billion art market she has defined so elegantly.
