J. Tomilson (“Tom”) Hill III has a number of titles at the financial-services group Blackstone, including vice chairman of the Blackstone Group and president and CEO of Blackstone Alternative Asset Management. Along with his St. Louis–native wife, Janine, he has amassed a collection that spans eras and styles. “I don’t think many people 30 years ago were trying to put together works from different periods and mediums,” he told Art + Auction in January 2014. “It’s a more recent phenomenon. Can you put bronzes, post–World War II artists, and Old Masters together in a dialogue?” That same year, New York’s Frick Collection staged an exhibition called “Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes from the Hill Collection,” consisting of 33 statuettes dating from the mid-15th to the 18th century, drawn from the couple’s holdings.
