Jerry Hall: 'Buy Art From Your Gut'

Jerry Hall

You may not know that Jerry Hall—the American supermodel most famous for her decades-long relationship with Mick Jagger—is a big art collector.

Her personal stash includes work by Andy Warhol, Lucian Freud, Ed Ruscha, Tracey Emin, Roy Lichtenstein and Henri Matisse.

The affinity came about naturally. Discovered at age 16 by fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez and, soon after, Helmut Newton, Hall has had her portrait done by the likes of Warhol, Freud, Emin, Paul Benny and Francesco Clementi. French Vogue was her first cover—it came only months after the day she met Lopez wearing a pink metallic crochet bikini in Saint-Tropez one summer.

I recently asked Hall, 57, about her love of art. She said it all started with Lopez, who “knew everyone” back then and showed her the scene, as it were. Soon Warhol and Salvador Dali became friends who “started me on my journey of collecting,” she says. It was a revelation for the young girl from a small town in Texas.

“I loved the way artists are able through their work, to give us an outlet to express emotions that we are unable to articulate,” Hall says.

That mentality is also the ticket to her success as a collector and patron, she told me. And when it comes to actually making a purchase, the lady goes with her instinct.

“It is always a challenge buying art to know what is its true value—there is always the question of will an artist have staying power or is it the cult of the personality of the artist—but I think you should always buy art from your gut,” she said.

This month Hall is the guest of honor at a MTV RE:DEFINE benefit during the Dallas Art Fair and next week will be making the rounds at the Dallas Contemporary considering new works for her personal portfolio.

Rest assured she’ll be taking her own advice: ”Only buy something that you want to look at, something that you love.”
