A passion for Italy: fashion designer Gerolamo Etro's outstanding collection includes antiquities, 2oth-century masters and West African masks, but its main accent is on grand Italian 16th- and 17th-century works. He talks to Apollo about his love of the baroque--and the complexities of Italy's export laws. Humphries, Oscar 1703
A temple to art: Dr Gordon Sze's minimalist loft in New York houses his museum-quality collection of Melanesian and Polynesian art. He talks to Apollo about why tribal art captured his imagination and how his uncle, the architect I.M. Pei, influenced the way in which he displays his art. Nicholson, Louise 1830

Fashioning art's future: launched as an offshoot of the global fashion brand, the Fondazione Prada has developed a reputation for ambitious commissions. Now, with the restoration of an 18th-century palazzo in Venice, and a Rem Koolhaas-designed building set to open in Milan in 2013, is the foundation about to evolve into a world-class museum? Luke, Ben 2452
From the archives: 'my work won't last anyway,' said Andy Warhol. 'I was using cheap paint.' The Pop artist's legacy is now beyond doubt but, in the 1980s, his blankness left many critics bemused--including Mahonri Sharp Young, writing in June 1989. O'Byrne, Robert Critical essay 764

Vaccaro, Mary Report 4371
