The Hollywood Reporter Reveals the Industry's Top 25 Art Collectors
John may be better known for his Grammys than his (Andreas) Gurskys, but the musician, with his husband, David Furnish, has amassed one of the world's most important photography collections, with an emphasis on portraits, celebrity and fashion.
First exposed to Horst P. Horst's erotically charged fashion portraiture, in 1993 John went on to collect Man Ray's Glass Tears, acquired for a record-setting $193,000 (now worth closer to $2 million). Favorites include seminal artists such as early innovators Andre Kertesz and Edward Steichen and portrait masters Irving Penn, Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon and David LaChapelle.
Through Sir Elton's continued involvement in the art world (in particular, his high-profile charity auctions), the singer broadened his interests to include new classicists Tracey Moffatt, Gilbert & George and art-world wunderkind Ryan McGinley.
