Alice Walton on Her Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art - NYTimes.com:
"Ms. Walton, who has been an art collector most of her life, turned to buying art specifically for the museum in 2005, resulting in a spending spree that has made her a recognized force in the art market. She has been one of those mysterious anonymous buyers at auctions and at galleries who often pay top dollar and has spent many tens of millions of dollars on works like Gilbert Stuart’s portrait of George Washington from 1797 ($8.1 million), Asher B. Durand’s “Kindred Spirits” from 1849 ($35 million) and Norman Rockwell’s 1943 “Rosie the Riveter” ($4.9 million)."
