Transcription

1 When talking about art collections, the Americans as Gagosian and Serota, the Pinaults or the multimillionaire Chinese serve as the categorical points of reference. We never hear talk about Senor Eljuri. And yet... This rich Ecuadorian's private collection would turn more than one museum green with envy. A few figures suffice to sum up the situation: 8000 paintings by the masters (from El Greco to Picasso without forgetting those such as Lichtenstein), hundreds of antique pieces of furniture, sculptures (some Dalis, Rodins...), antique watches, jewelry... And all of this purchased according to the book at Sotheby's and Christie's. For the first time, he opens the doors... The follies of the Ecuadorian collector Jorge Eljuri.
