Big ears

What art collectors have to say:

“These days you have to ask yourself whether you want to spend that money on a ranch or a painting.”
Stephen Carlson, Montana

"Art is a terrible investment,''
Don Rubell, Miami

“I’m not collecting guns anymore. I’m really focused on finding better paintings.”
Seth Eastman, Texas

“There are no rules about investment. Sharks can be good. Artist’s dung can be good. Oil on canvas can be good.”
Charles Saatchi, London

"When I see something I like, I buy it, but I do not look for it madly."
David Rockefeller, New York

"Oh shit. Look what I’ve done."
Steve Wynn, Las Vegas (after punching a whole through a Picasso)
