Supercollector: A Critique of Charles Saatchi
An updated and revised edition of the first book on Charles Saatchi as an art collector. An in-depth study of the man and his motivation, it takes a critical look at the story of the Saatchi advertising agencies, the famous Silk Cut campaign and Saatchi's work for the Tory Party. In particular, it argues that advertising values permeate the kind of art Saachi supports and takes a close look at the influence he has exercised on public galleries and institutions.
