Famous Taiwan company Yageo Corporation was founded by Mr.Pierre Tie Min Chen. He is known as one of the most powerful art collectors in the world. Now his selected works are displayed at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. His collection consist of the works by great modern Chinese painters like Sanyu and Western contemporary works by Gerhard Richter. Now, Sanyu is the most expensive artist in Chinese modern art, and Richter is in contemporary art. There are so many art works displayed in Mr. Chen’s house and office. For 30 years from his first collection at age 20, his life has been always surrounded by art. He said “ I looked at this exhibition yesterday. And I remembered the memory concerning the each work and I think that art give so much happiness to me again”. We can see the 74 impressive works from his collection in the exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo now.
