Son of Raymond and brother of Jeffrey, who is also on the ARTnews Top 200 list, Ronald might be the Perelman who gets the most headlines and Page Six coverage. In the visual arts, Perelman collects big contemporary names, such as Cy Twombly and Richard Serra. He made his money with a very diverse group of investments, from makeup to pharmaceuticals, and his former ownership of Marvel Entertainment Group led to Perelman being caricatured in Alternative Comics’ Titans of Finance.
