WEFOUNDThe Collector and Art Critic, Vol. 4: March, 1906 (Classic Reprint)


To chronicle our times and these champions of the arts who hail from all corners of the planet and every possible background, artnet News has compiled the ultimate two-part list. Our roster of collectors features those who have been most active within the past 12 months and have shown a remarkable commitment to collecting.

We acknowledge that the lineup is heavily skewed toward male collectors based in the US, but beyond the usual suspects, we’ve done our best to cast a light on collectors you may not have yet heard about. We’re impressed by the number of influential women who made the cut (see The 100 Most Powerful Women in Art: Part One ), as well as the marked contingent of younger Chinese men and women including Richard Chang, David Chau and Kelly Ying, Adrian Cheng, and Lin Han.

Some collectors are profiled in depth, while others, our “Collectors to Watch”—including emerging connoisseurs, those who are operating under the radar, and those who were once very active even if they’ve been quieter in recent years—are incorporated by name only.

Germany's oldest and most important art fair will take place from 19 to 22 April in the exhibition halls of Koelnmesse. Once again, around 200 renowned galleries will exhibit and showcase works by about 2,000 artists from the modern, post-war and contemporary art.

Fifteen buildings — from between 1958 and 2011 — by the versatile and prolific architect Gustav Peichl have been selected for the MAK exhibition, affording a unique insight into his oeuvre.

In our In the Studio series we document our talks with much-discussed emerging and internationally well-established artists.
