16. Debra and Leon Black

Location: New York
Year collection began: Unknown

The main reason why Debra and Leon Black are on this list is because Leon was the anonymous buyer of Edvard Munch's The Scream, which sold for an astronomical $120 million, after a 12-minute bidding battle in May 2012. Mr. Leon Black sits on the board of both the Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as the Museum of Modern Art (where there is a gallery that holds their namesake) in New York, in addition to being considered one of the more powerful Wall Street art collectors. Though he and his wife have been tacked for their affinity for drawings, their collection now ranges from the Old Masters and Impressionists to Chinese sculpture and Brancusi.
