$500 Million In Masterpieces at Gary Nader's Joe Berardo Collection Opening (Photos)

Last night, Gary Nader, the world's top collector of Latin American art, opened his gallery to Portuguese billionaire Joe Berardo, who received a key to the City of Miami for making it rain $500 million worth of masterpieces in one big room. The top floor of the Nader space is fully stocked with works by Warhol, Stella, Basquiat, Picasso, and more blue chips than a night in Montecarlo.

Russian ballers, Brazilian kingpins, social climbers, and a sports legend were all there to partake, but while two years ago, the gallery was serving up unlimited, free, Johnny Walker Blue for an opening, this year there were just three measly bars of top shelf liquor on hand.
