Known in the Hollywood circuit for his philanthropy and investments, entertainment-industry mogul Michael Ovitz has previously served as chairman of the Creative Artists Agency and president of the Walt Disney Company. Ovitz focuses on modern and contemporary art; his collection, which includes work by Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns, hangs in his 28,000-square-foot home, which features a top-of-the-line white box gallery space. “Michael’s collection is wonderful,” Arne Glimcher, the founder of the Pace Gallery, once told Vanity Fair. “He’s a collector whose interests range from 20th-century to Dürer and Rembrandt etchings, and he also has terrific Ming furniture and Persian carpets.”
