2. Roman Abramovich and Dasha Zhukova

Roman Abramovich born in 1966 is a Russian business tycoon. His partner Dasha Zhukova is managing a gallery of contemporary art in Moscow that occupies a historical Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage building by Konstantin Melnikov. The building, neglected for decades and partially taken apart by previous tenants, was restored in 2007-2008 and reopened to the public in September 2008. Speed and expense of restoration is credited to sponsorship by Abramovich.   Roman Abramovich sponsored an exhibition of photographs of Uzbekistan by renowned Soviet photographer Max Penson (1893-1959) which opened on 29 November 2006 at the Gilbert Collection at Somerset House in London. He previously funded the exhibition "Quiet Resistance: Russian Pictorial Photography 1900s-1930s" at the same gallery in 2005. Both exhibits were organized by the Moscow House of Photography.   In May 2008 Abramovich emerged as a major buyer in the international art auction market. He purchased Francis Bacon's Triptych 1976 for E61.4 million (US$86.3 million) (a record price for a post-war work of art) and Lucian Freud's Benefits Supervisor Sleeping for E23.9 million (US$33.6 million) (a record price for a work by a living artist).   The building, neglected for decades and partially taken apart by previous tenants, was restored in 2007-2008 and reopened to the public in September 2008. Speed and expense of restoration is credited to sponsorship by Abramovich.

 

 

 

 


 

3. Paul Allen

Paul Gardner Allen born in 1953 is known mainly as the co-founder of Microsoft, but he also owns a couple of sports teams and founder of Vulcan Inc., which manages his business and philanthropic efforts. Since 1990, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation has awarded $428 million to non-profit organizations. The most famous of these projects is the Experience Music Project in Seattle Washington.

It is unknown how vast his art collection since he buys his artwork anonymously. Consultants, art handlers and conservators who work for him must agree to keep mum about what they see as well. The public viewed 28 paintings out of Paul’s collection in 2006, where he displayed it at the Experience Music Project, which he founded in 2000. Allen displayed a Gauguin he bought for a record $39.2 million, a Brueghel not seen in public for 100 years and modern pieces by Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein.
