Following Saatchi's Lead, Collectors Plan to Open Galleries

The blaze that tore through a London art warehouse last week has accidentally thrown light on a mysterious and little understood corner of British culture, Vanessa Thorpe writes in The Guardian: the discreet millionaires and billionaires who acquire art compulsively, only to stash much of it away in specialist warehouses and storerooms. But now, following the lead of Charles Saatchi, at least two top collectors—contemporary British art collector Frank Cohen and Islamic art collector Nasser Khalili—are planning to open galleries that will enable their art to remain in the public eye.
