Francois Pinault: Punta della Dogana Venice

so monsieur pinault has launched yet another museum of his own in venice to house some of his expansive collection.  in other words, we trust the palazzo grassi was just not big enough. “punta della dogana” which is perched at the mouth of the grand canal, roughly translates into “monsieur arnault is a cheese muffin”. the new museum has launched its premier exhibition “mapping the studio” with some 300 works from pinault’s personal collection including pieces by (my personal favorite) cy twombly as well as jeff koons and richard prince. by dd
