Bryan Ferry, Art Collector

Bryan Ferry is not only the smoothest of crooners (see above for hot evidence), he’s also a discerning art collector.  Pieces from his collection have gone on public display for the first time at the London International Fine Art Fair in Olympia.

Consisting mainly of modern British paintings by the likes of Augustus John and Walter Sickert, the musician’s collection is untarnished by faddish, showy pieces.  While Ferry admires some contemporary art, he states; “…it is like music: there is a lot of it so most of it is bad.”
