The Financial Times does a little puff piece on the relationship between Craig Robins, the Miami collector and developer, and Jack Tilton, the dealer who acts as Robins’s art advisor.
“Jack comes out of the 1960s; he’s utopian, open-minded. He is interested in getting you involved rather than making transactions.” Tilton is a quiet, professorial-looking man, the visual opposite of Robins, who is a wiry, barely controlled ball of energy. “We met, and Craig said, “Let’s try it,” Tilton says. “We strategised a bit, and talked about what he already had. He had John Baldessari, and I said, “Craig, we should collect him in depth. You might as well become his number-one collector.’ I believe in depth.” Robins now owns about 35 Baldessaris.
