Judy and Michael Steinhardt collect things. Lots of things. In fact, the family is estimated to have spent more than $200 million over the years on their various collections, which cover a broad range of categories, including everything from Ancient Peruvian feather textiles to exotic animals and plants. Their fine-art collection includes works by Pollock, Picasso, Cézanne, Klee, Beckmann, Dubuffet, and many more, but they are also well-known collectors of antiquities from the Ancient Near East, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome. There’s one thing they don’t collect, however–at least not any longer. They sold their comprehensive collection of Judaica—over 400 items—at a Sotheby’s auction in 2013.
