The Hollywood Reporter Reveals the Industry's Top 25 Art Collectors
Tisch took a shine to collecting after receiving a Joan Miro print for his bar mitzvah.
Like Forrest Gump (which won the producer an Oscar), Tisch's collection encapsulates a century's highlights: from American modernists Arthur Dove and Georgia O'Keeffe, to postwar greats Vija Celmins, John Baldessari, David Hockney and Robert Mapplethorpe, to today's most sought-after artists, including Thomas Houseago, Glenn Ligon and Alex Hubbard.
"I don't buy as an investment," says the decades-long friend of Ed Ruscha and a LACMA trustee since 2010 (in 2011, Tisch donated the $467,500 video work The Clock by Christian Marclay to the museum). "I buy because I appreciate the work." With the help of longtime art adviser Jaime Frankfurt, Tisch's collection has grown so large, he's replacing the tennis court at his Benedict Canyon estate with a private, 4,000-square-foot museum. "Especially with younger, emerging artists, the scale is really big," he tells THR.
