Brad Pitt – Art Collector

Who knew Mr. Pitt is an art collector? Quite a few, it seems. Seen at Art Basel in Switzerland, considered the premiere international art show for modern and contemporary works.

“Yes, Brad Pitt visited and had lunch here,” communications manager Peter Vetsch confirmed. Although the show was not yet open to the public, Pitt (a notorious art buff) enjoyed a special showing of stylish furniture from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s at the Design Miami gallery.

“Brad asked questions that only an art expert would ask,” Wendelin Lang, who organized the exhibit, told Blick, a daily Swiss newspaper. “You can feel that he is an absolute maniac.”

He acquired a pricey coffee table (!) and reportedly enjoyed lunch – a tuna burger and two Coke Zeros – in the Art Collectors Lounge. “He looked deep into the eyes of the staff,” his server, Erna Zürcher Lüscher, told the paper. “His charisma is just super.”

A 2009 article in The Sun (UK) states that art dealers are trying to seduce him with various pieces. But he has his eye on a drawing by American Richard Serra, a painting by Japan’s Yayoi Kusama and another drawing by Canadian Marcel Dzama.
