Richard H. Driehaus

Richard H. Driehaus was born and raised in Chicago, where he founded--and still runs—his successful capital management firm. Mr. Driehaus has a passion for protecting beautiful objects of the past, which led him to begin collecting decorative arts in the 1970s. His collections now range from American masters like Tiffany and the Herter Brothers; to Hector Guimard and Alfonse Mucha, at the pinnacle of French art nouveau; to Weiner Werkstatte’s Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser….and to classic American automobiles. Among his greatest pleasures is sharing his collections with the public. He is also a philanthropist who supports historic preservation, modern classical architecture, arts, culture, democracy and economic opportunity through the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
