Corporate art collections go on display

London exhibition of world-class paintings aims to convey that big-business collections can aid the art world.

    For years, successful companies have been spending money on artworks, with some owning hundreds of original pieces by the world's greatest artists.

    Now, their collections have been catalogued for the first time, and some of the art has gone on display.
