Provenance: Estate of Pentti Kouri, NYC; Galerie Anhava, Finland

Notes/Literature: Dr. Pentti Kouri (1949-2009) was a Finnish economist and venture capitalist with partner George Soros. He built his prestigious art collection with the goal of opening a private art foundation focused on his interests in Minimalism, Arte Povera, Conceptual and Text-based art. He was a member of the Board of Trustees of Dia Art Foundation, and on the boards of Tate, London and the Guggenheim Museum, New York. In addition, a portion of his collection forms the core of the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Finland (http://kokoelmat.fng.fi/app?si=http://kansallisgalleria.fi/E78.Collection_Kouri_kokoelma&lang=en).
