Yang Bin is a Chinese car dealer who has turned collecting into something of a sport—when he goes to auctions, Yang has been known to invite his friends to bid against him. Yang, who began collecting after hearing so much about art at the daily parties in his Beijing penthouse, is part of a generation of Chinese collectors who are buying up art quickly and becoming major players in the art world. His 1,000-work collection covers centuries of art history, from Ming vases to Liu Wei.
