WEBINAR VISIT OF PATRICIA MARSHALL’S PRIVATE HOME AND COLLECTION
Patricia Marshall, originally from Paris and based in Los Angeles for 23 years, comes from of family of prominent art collectors. She began her career working with Robert Schmidt, a French dealer of Modern and Impressionist art, and quickly found herself gravitating towards Contemporary Art, which became her first love.
In 1994 Patricia joined forces with Eugenio Lopez to build the Jumex Foundation in Mexico City. She built an important private Impressionist collection that will be donated to the LACMA in Los Angeles, and has since built Contemporary Art collections for clients in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London, Stockholm, and Switzerland. When Patricia returned to Paris in 2003, she introduced Bernard Arnault to Contemporary Art and worked with him for five years until he changed his focus to building a museum. Nineteen years after Patricia began her collaboration with Eugenio Lopez she saw the culmination of her efforts when the Museo Jumex opened in 2013 where she also curated one of the three opening shows.
Patricia Marshall is well known for her support of the Los Angeles Art scene at a time when it was unpopular. She helped build the reputations of artists such as Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Jim Shaw, Sam Durant, Jason Rhodes and others, and single-handedly boosted the L.A. art market.
