    Takashi Murakami’s recent solo show at Gagosian Roma (Italy) included two epic versions of Dragon in Clouds.

Estimated to move a staggering $1 billion worth of modern and contemporary art annually at his 11 global galleries, dealer Larry Gagosian represents 77 of the world's top artists and estates, including Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Cy Twombly, Richard Serra, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst and Ed Ruscha.

Gagosian says he needs to mount about 60 fresh exhibitions each year.

So how did he build this worldwide mega-franchise of galleries with blue-chip, top-dollar artists?

Arts writer Kelly Crow details the gears that make Gagosian go in a rare interview in the WSJ covering the dealer's network of collectors and artists.
