POLAND---The investor and philanthropist Grazyna Kulczyk is set to finance a museum in Warsaw to which she intends to donate her collection of art, deemed by art critics the most valuable collection of contemporary artwork in Eastern Europe. Her art collection features over 600 works by Polish and foreign artists, including Wladyslaw Strzeminski, Tadeusz Kantor, Roman Opalka, Antoni Tàpies, Anselm Kiefer, Joan Mitchell and Andy Warhol. It is estimated to be worth at least 100 million euros ($106 million). [link]
