Avid Collectors Corbin and Hess

I admire how avid collectors continue to seek out art they love and unceasingly amass bodies of works of art. I look forward to leafing through the pages of avid collector Michael Corbin's book as reviewed here "The Art of Everyday Joe: A Collector's Journal" A fresh look at the wonder of artistic collection BY J. EDWARD SUMERAU


Artist Regia Richest posted about Donald Hess, a Swiss art collector. Her source The Art Newspaper article by Charmaine Picard 19.6.08 Issue 192 tells how

Mr Hess is an avid collector who started buying paintings directly from Francis
Bacon and Robert Motherwell in the early 1960s. He says: “I collect
about 20 artists at a time and I have about 15 to 30 works by each.” His
holdings include art by Frank Stella, Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter,
Leopold Maler, Per Kirkeby, Andy Goldsworthy and Magdalena Abakanowicz,
among others.
