About Charles Saatchi

See more books from this Author
In 1970 Charles Saatchi founded the Saatchi & Saatchi Advertising Agency, which grew to become the largest agency in the world. At the same time, Saatchi began collecting art and later opened his first gallery, a 30,000 square-foot former paint factory in London. His exhibitions have always focused on contemporary artists and Saatchi’s Sensation exhibition on Young British Artists at the Royal Academy of Art, London, and at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, sparked an explosion of controversy. The new Saatchi Gallery in London’s King’s Road is one of the largest showcases of contemporary art in the world and hosted five of the six most-visited exhibitions in London.
