Collectionneurs du monde Bilingual edition/Édition bilingue
Judith Benhamou-Huet
Traduit par Erin Lawlor

Who are the art collectors of today? What motivates them? Mercantile or compulsive, impassioned or philanthropic… they are admired, courted, and feared. In truth we know little about them. While the names of the most famous spring immediately to mind – Agnès B., François Pinault, Daniel Filipacchi, Pierre Rosenberg and Pierre Cardin for France, Eli Broad, Ileana Sonnabend et al. overseas – what do we really know of that initial spark that one day led them to take the leap into the never-ending undertaking that collecting represents?
Judith Benhamou-Huet has traveled the world to meet the most interesting players in this quest for beauty: men and women of diverse profiles and motivations, whose only common ground is their insatiable appetite for art. The result is a collection of 114 surprising, striking and sincere portraits offering a veritable panorama of collecting in these first years of the 21st century.
A panorama of art collecting today, as seen through 114 portraits of art collectors the world over. Relevant, elegant and concise texts, with information of interest both to players in the art market and to a broader public.
A bilingual (French-English) edition for the international market.
