Home to more than 120,000 works from the 20th and 21st centuries, the Centre Pompidou in Paris has the largest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe.

William Lim trained as an architect, but he says art is his first love. He is an avid collector, artist and educator. Last year, he and his wife donated 90 works from their own collection to the M+ museum. Lim held his first solo exhibition at Grotto Fine Art 16 years ago. Since then, he and the gallery have continued to collaborate from time to time, with works that range from photographic prints on canvas to works using disposable objects. On show at Grotto SKW right now, “A Year of Lost & Found” features new works, most of which are oil paintings.
