In this photo taken on Monday, April 2, 2012, Indonesian-Chinese farming tycoon Budi Tek poses in front of a painting by Gerhard Richter during an auction preview in Hong Kong. Tek is set to open the De Museum in Shanghai next year featuring Asian and Western contemporary art, after opening his first in Indonesia's capital Jakarta in 2008. While Asia's new generation of wealthy are usually better known for splashing out on extravagant toys such as private jets, mega-sized yachts and supercars some, instead, have built big art collections and now aspire to showcase their refined sensibility to a wider audience.
