Leo DiCaprio Named One of the World's Top Art Collectors

Genevieve Fish

On the heels of Forbes’s annual Celebrity 100 list, which crowned Katy Perry the world’s highest-paid female star, ArtNews published its annual Top 200 Collectors list, a roundup of the wealthiest art collectors around the globe. This year Leonardo DiCaprio made his debut on the list, and while this may seem shocking to most of his admiring fans, DiCaprio has been immersed in the art world since childhood. His father, an avant-garde comic book illustrator, introduced DiCaprio to his artist friends in the 1970s and 1980s. The actor was even named after Leonardo da Vinci! And he has been a regular paparazzi favourite at Art Basel in Switzerland and Miami as well as Venice’s La Biennale.
