Described as 'The International Magazine for Collectors', Apollo is owned by the Barclay brothers through the Press Holdings Media Group company.

Smith, Sheihka Hussah al-Sabah and Charles Ryskamp.

Along with regular news and reviews, Apollo has published recent interviews with high profile contemporary artist including Howard Hodgkin,[2] Mark Quinn,[3] Antony Gormley and architect Norman Foster. Its end-of-year awards includes a 'Personality of the Year'; in 2011 the winner was Sir Mark Jones, former Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum.[4]
