If you've got enough cash in your coffers, putting together a world-class art collection shouldn't take too much effort. Case in point is Swiss banking giant UBS, which lords over a whopping 32,000 works mainly created after 1960, including pieces by the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lucian Freud and Roy Lichtenstein. Usually decorating lobbies and boardrooms in glass-and-steel towers around the world, some of the collection's greatest hits can now be viewed at the Tokyo Station Gallery, where the work of 12 artists has been divvied up into 12 rooms, one each for names such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Ed Ruscha, David Hockney, Freud and Chen Chieh-Jen. Catch the selection of around 80 pieces before it's ferried back beyond the reach of the great unwashed.
