Crunching the Numbers Behind the Boom in Private Art Museums

What kind of person opens a private contemporary art museum? According to a new reportby the art collector database Larry’s List and the Chinese art market site Artron, he’s probably in his 60s or his 70s; he’s probably from South Korea, the US, or Germany; he probably founded his museum in the last 15 years; and he’s most likely a “he” — women account for just 18% of private contemporary art museum founders.
