You’d Be Surprised Who’s an Art Collector These Days
Here we thought all blue-chip art collectors were stuffy Upper East Siders with summer houses on the Vineyard and live-in pharmacists. That would be wrong, according to Art Info. The art times they are a-changin’, and with it a new set of powerhouse collectors. These bold-facers include not just the rather obvious Marc Jacobs and Sofia Coppola, but also Beyoncé and Jay-Z (who apparently take breaks from being crazy in love to drop a few Ks on wall decorations for their yacht), the Beckhams (who have all that extra cash from not eating) and Hugh Grant, who even while drunk managed to score himself a Warhol at auction. We think Andy would have approved.
