ArtNews released its Top 200 list. Even though the idea is getting old (this is the 25th Anniversary of the list) there are some interesting surprises, like, how much Contemporary art has extended to all collectors.

Contemporary art attracted 90 percent of collectors on the list, up from 58 percent in 1990, according to the survey. Interest in Impressionism and post-Impressionism fell to 9 percent from 14 percent in 1990.
Reflecting the private museum boom, 46 collectors have their own exhibition spaces, according to the magazine.
There are also 23 new names on the list:
