Steven Latner and Michael Latner are brothers from the Albert Latner family, known in Toronto for property development and real estate. As collectors, they share a body of work that was in part passed down from their father, who passed away in 2015, known for his prestigious collection featuring names such as Picasso, Modigliani, and Matisse. At the Art Gallery of Ontario, a gallery named after the brothers is dedicated to the influential Canadian artist Michael Snow, the director of the pioneering Structuralist film Wavelength (1967).
