"Larry List" - the base of the largest art collectors Automatic translate
Billionaire philanthropist Eli Broad is the largest art collector in the world. At least, this is the claim of the new site containing the most comprehensive database of collectors and their collections, in which more than 3,000 profiles of the largest art collectors on the planet are already registered.
Brod, which plans to open the Museum of Modern Art in Los Angeles next year, is at the top of the Larry’s List, a website dedicated to art collectors.
The new site provides information on the contacts of collectors in more than 70 countries and a detailed report on the specific works that they acquired over the years. You can simply enter the names of artists in the search bar, and you will get a complete list of collectors who collect them. Individual collector profiles on the new site, which has become fully operational this week, can be purchased for only $ 9.50 each.
According to the creators of the site, artists can access all information for free.
“We’re ready for some stagnation at the beginning,” Magnus Resch, founder of the company, said in an interview. “But over time, we believe that this will become a common tool. This is cheap compared to other databases compiled from publicly available sources. ”
Resh, who is only 29 years old, said that information about collectors was collected by 25 researchers who used publicly available media. They did not consult with the collectors themselves, Resh admitted.
The database evaluates collectors according to their online presence, institutional involvement, participation in art fairs and auctions, communication platforms and the size of their collections.
According to these criteria, Eli and Edith Brod take first place in the world among the largest collectors, followed by Cypriot Dakis Joannou, who lives in London, and then Anita and Poju Zabludowicz.
The first 60 pages of the Larry List will be officially published this fall.
