David & Ezra Nahmad

These two Syrian art dealers have «stockpiled» one of the largest collections of blue chip paintings, including Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Mark Rothko and more.

The Nahmad brothers are some of the most influential art dealers in the world. They have dealt in the biggest names of the 20th century, including Rothko, Renoir, Monet and Matisse. Most of their work is sold at auction. The brothers store somewhere between 4,000 and 4500 duty free in a warehouse next to Geneva airport.

Forbes has estimated Ezra and David Nahmad’s art collection to be worth $7-8 billion.
