Restaurants and art have had an interesting history. Famed restaurateur Michael Chow was known to have kept a bound book with blank pages for artists to draw to create a work for him while they dined. Mr. Chow was known to have traded food for artworks as a pioneering restaurateur art collector. And some of the famed artists known to have dined at his Mr Chow New York restaurant included Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.

Michael Chow purchased art for his collection, beginning in the 1960’s, from such UK artists as Peter Blake, David Hockney, and American artist Jim Dine. Some restaurateurs today who have large art collections include Leah Chase and Matt Haley, and Wolfgang Puck decorates his restaurants with the works of top contemporary artists.
