This essay offers a counterpoint to Le Breton-Miller and Miller's argument that family firms are the ideal organizational form for arts-based businesses and creative work. While the notion of the isolated, individual genius artist has certain romantic appeal, we offer evidence that demonstrates that considerable artistic creativity occurs within the context of a large diversified corporation, at the level of the industry and at the level of the cultural field.
