A Rodin sits outside his door – one of the 380 in his possession, the largest number in private hands in the world.
It is the definition of a “money no object” collection.
A new museum to house his vast collection is due to open in Mexico City next week, and the quality is evident from a visit to his office.
In the lobby of his headquarters, housed in an unassuming building in the city’s upmarket business district, is a bronze of Michelangelo’s Pietà, while the walls are covered with Van Goghs, Renoirs and El Grecos.
His black leather loafers are shiny, but no more brilliant than any other self-respecting Mexican businessman’s.
