Throughout history artists have collected objects for professional and private reasons. Picasso, for example, collected African and Oceanic art. This book takes a look at the private collecting habits of modern and contemporary artists including Arman, Peter Blake, Hanne Darboven, Edmund de Waal, Damien Hirst, Howard Hodgkin, Dr Lakra, Sol LeWitt, Martin Parr, Jim Shaw, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Andy Warhol, Pae White, Martin Wong and Danh Vo. Their holdings range from mass-produced memorabilia and popular collectibles, such as cookie jars and children's toys owned by Warhol, to unique curiosities and specimens, like Blake's collection of Walter Potter taxidermy and other curios and rarefied artifacts, such as Japanese antiquities owned by Sugimoto. Presented alongside key examples of their work, these objects provide insight into the inspirations, influences, motives and obsessions of their owners.
