Where did all the Sensation art go?
Much of the iconic British work of the 1990s is now in US collections

LONDON. Frank Gallipoli, a commodities trader based in New Canaan, Connecticut, has bought several major pieces from Charles Saatchi's 1997 "Sensation" exhibition. His purchases include Marcus Harvey's 1995 portrait of Myra Hindley, Gavin Turk's 1993 self portrait as Sid Vicious, Pop, and works by Chris Ofili, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Gary Hume, Jenny Saville and Simon Patterson. Mr Gallipoli is one of at least five US collectors who have bought art originally shown in "Sensation".
As the Royal Academy in London inaugurates "USA Today", a new show of work by American artists drawn from the collection of Charles Saatchi, we reveal where many of the works originally exhibited in "Sensation" are today.
The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and MoMA in New York have acquired major pieces from the exhibition, by Rachel Whiteread and Yinka Shonibare respectively, while Tate in London has purchased only one relatively inexpensive work from the show, a video by Sam Taylor-Wood. Private collectors in England have bought a handful of "Sensation" works while other major pieces have gone to European collections. [read on...]
