Billionaire Julian Robertson’s $181 Million Art Collection is Moving From NYC to New Zealand

Paintings by Picasso, Dali and Matisse were part of a bequest to the Auckland Art Gallery.

A $181 million art collection that belonged to Tiger Management founder Julian Robertson will soon be removed from the billionaire’s Manhattan living room and sent to New Zealand.

The bequest includes 15 masterpieces by artists including Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Henri Matisse. It was promised to the Auckland Art Gallery in 2009 by Robertson and his late wife Josie upon their deaths, and was selected by the gallery from the couple’s wider collection.
