- "Charles Saatchi has been one of the moving forces of the modern age. Founder of global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi, and the most influential art collector of our time, he has vigorously shaped the contemporary art scene while contradictorily remaining a reclusive, even elusive figure." "Though he - famously - refuses to be interviewed, you can now read his brutally frank responses to a battery of questions put to him by leading journalists and critics as well as members of the public." "Charles Saatchi founded the Saatchi & Saatchi advertising agency in 1970, which grew to become the largest agency in the world. At the same time, Saatchi started collecting art and later opened his first gallery, a 30,000 square foot ex-paint factory in Boundary Road, London." "His exhibitions have always focused on contemporary artists and Saatchi's Sensation exhibition of Young British Artists in 1997 at the Royal Academy, London and at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York sparked an explosion of controversy about new British art." "The new 70,000 square foot Saatchi Gallery in the Duke of York's HQ, King's Road is one of the largest showcases for contemporary art in the world."--BOOK JACKET.
