Scott Cluthe interviews Carl David, author of Bader Field and a national advocate for awareness about the tragic consequences of suicide on surviving members of families. Scott also has a Best of PI repeat of a recent interview with Super Immunity author Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Carl David is the third generation of a four-generation family art business in Philadelphia which was founded by his Grandfather, David David, circa 1910. The business was later expanded by Samuel David, his son, to incorporate paintings, watercolors and sculptures of both European and American origin. Samuel David was a force with which to be reckoned in and out of the art world. His legacy lives on long after his untimely passing.
His son, Carl David is the author of Collecting & Care of Fine Art published by Crown in 1981. At a time when art was being wantonly touted as an investment vehicle, Carl felt the obligation to inform the public of how and why the art market really works, divulging facts and dispelling myths of illusory nature. Collectors, both seasoned and novice were thrilled to get a realistic appraisal of the art markets.
Mr. David's latest book, Bader Field, embodies the emotional story of a son's loving relationship with his father—the legendary art dealer whose life is suddenly taken by a massive coronary at the young age of fifty-eight years. His death plunges the twenty-four-year-old man onto the front lines of the family art business, which he had entered a mere three years prior. Battling with his own grief while trying to help his adoring but fragile mother survive, His journey proves a difficult one, not having yet recovered from the horrific loss of his brother who was found dead on the fourth floor of the Rittenhouse Square townhouse, which was home to the prestigious David David Gallery.
