Quick Takes

Broads make Top 10 list

July 07, 2009|Suzanne Muchnic

It's here: this year's edition of the ARTnews list of the world's 200 top collectors -- a ranking that lots of art-world folks love to hate and debate. And yes, the roster of acquisitors from 22 countries includes collectors from Los Angeles -- six who claim the L.A. area as their primary residence and three who have secondary homes here.

As usual, Edythe L. and Eli Broad are prominently featured. They rank third in the Top 10 list, bested only by Roman Abramovich of London and Moscow and Debra and Leon Black of New York. The other L.A. residents who made the cut are Maria and William Bell, Peter Norton, Judy and Michael Ovitz, Eric Smidt and Dean Valentine. Those who are based elsewhere but also have homes in L.A. are Eugenio Lopez Alonso of Mexico City, Susan and Larry Marx of Aspen, Colo., and Beth Swofford of New York.

For The Record

Art collectors: In Tuesday's Calendar, the Quick Takes column reported that Edythe L. and Eli Broad rank third on ARTnews' list of Top 10 collectors. In fact, they are in the top 10, but that short list, selected from the magazine's 2009 roster of the world's 200 top collectors, are not ranked in order of importance.
