With over two million visitors in three years, la Pinacothèque de Paris has established itself on the French cultural scene. This artistic complex, became essential, providing visitors with 5000 square meters of exhibitions, as well as educational activities and cultural events such as the recently exhibited artwork of Van Gogh that ended on March 17th 2013.

The newest exhibition to be featured at the Pinacotheque de Paris is the artwork by Tamara de Lempicka, Queen of Art Deco, from April 18th 2013 to September 8th 2013 in Paris, France. The exhibit allow visitors to discover the first retrospective of the Art Deco movement in evolution through one of its icons, Tamara de Lempicka.

Tamara is contemporary Art Deco. She creates her finest works from 1925 to 1935. Her career and life are related to the movement that it is the most famous representative. Illustration of the Roaring Twenties, a lifestyle, a form of worldliness and creative freedom of thought and it takes a very particular style which gives it a place quite apart in modern art. Unclassifiable, yet she signs the finest masterpieces of Art Deco.

The Pinacotheque de Paris, in collaboration with Victoria De Lempicka, daughter and heir to the Estate and Marilyn Goldberg, President of Museum Masters, chooses today to show the work of Tamara and illustrate how this artist through her work but also her personality and unclassifiable ambiguous, will stick perfectly to the period it represents. Thank you to Gioia Mori, curator and leading expert on Tamara de Lempicka, Marilyn Goldberg, president of Museum Masters International and Victoria de Lempicka, president of Tamara Art Heritage for their work, expertise and assistance to realize this project. Special thanks to all the private and institutional collectors around the world for their generosity and support.

A Visionary's Dream Comes True In A Hamptons Artistic Paradise

To truly understand the impact and influence of one woman on not only the artworld but on the lifestyles of multiple generations, you would need to have been at the New York Coliseum, circa mid 1980s, when Artexpo was the king of art fairs and Marilyn Goldberg's Marigold Enterprises was the star attraction. For many consecutive years, there would be a crowd lined up at the Coliseum's massive glass front doors on opening day for the trade, waiting for the bell to ring so they could make a beeline to the Marigold booth. There, they would find hundreds of products from Picasso ashtrays to stunning paintings from unknown Chinese masters to works by the giants of the 20th century to unknown but soon to be famous artists. Kudo, Impiglia, Markus Pierson, John Lennon, Erté, Warhol, Dali all shared display space. As many of the items were limited editions, the rush to the booth was not unwarranted. Art galleries from around the globe could fill their walls and gift counters with one visit to Marigold's sprawling exhibition space where they would find Art Merchandise headlined by Pablo Picasso dinner wear, bedding and gift bags that revolutionized Museum shops from staid money losing space wasters to profit centers for such stalwarts as the Guggenheim and Hermitage. She went on to formulate the incredibly lucrative Erté sculpture and tapestry programs, and big-time licensing agreements with Salvador Dali and the estates of Keith Haring, Andy Warhol and John Lennon.

Years with Erte have affected the artwork, carpet designs, and even gift bags and note cards for the guests who will be staying in this grand and palatial environment. Her international promotion of the artist Tamara de Lempicka to major museums brought her paintings to the eight figure mark at recent auctions. For most, this would be more than enough work for a dozen lifetimes, but to Marilyn Goldberg, it was all a practice run for her dream: the Villa Marilyn Art of Living home in Southampton, New York, which was completed in June of 2012.

This incredible place welcomes you with handmade iron gates, a large private circular drive surrounded with stone and Belgian Block and exquisite double glass handcrafted

mahogany doors opening into the entrance foyer where you are greeted by a Keith Haring Americana tapestry and European hand-made crystal chandeliers. Warhol's Marilyn Monroe tapestry and Sidney Maurer's Brigitte Bardot portrait add to the star power to delight for the tasteful and artistic eye. Says Marilyn, "Living with art, color and design have been my life!

Every window explodes with views of flowers and gardens planted from bulbs from around the globe. With impeccable taste honed over decades of international business, this stylish woman has built her dream. Inside the gorgeous and newly furnished home are six fabulous bedrooms with custom electric positioning beds covered with European bed linens custom made for 25 years for Ms. Goldberg by Bette Nagle in Germany.

The landscaping includes sculpted stones from Arizona, carved bronze banana leaf bronze bases for coffee tables from Hawaii, outdoor furniture hand-carved in Indonesia, with the most amazing parachute umbrellas of Mandarin orange that can dance in the wind, and flow with the breezes of the Atlantic.

"I had a dream," said Marilyn, "when I was 20 living in Amagansett on the ocean. It was to build a sanctuary and honor life. Villa Marilyn has replicated the gardens of Monet in Giverny, and The vegetable garden and fruit orchards are graced with Liechtenstein and Miro Art cats. Fresh mint abounds so we can drink home brewed teas in the Moroccan Arch rooms. The abundance of nature thrives in this Villa! It is a paradise for children who are awestruck and entertained incessantly with the boat dock pond, and waterfalls."

New headquarters for her company, Museum Masters International, Villa Marilyn is also available as the place to enjoy family reunions, special friends, and business meetings with clients. Vacations here may be reserved in advance by contacting MMIMarilyn@aol.com or calling 917-273-8710. Special thanks and kudos go to Gaetan Berube Builders South Hampton, Victor Rojas Landscaping South Hampton, East End Country Kitchens Custom Cabinetry, GE Granite and Marble and Anastasios Tzakas MA, AIA for the architecture for their work in creating this masterpiece. There will soon be a documentary made in Rome on Ms. Goldberg's Art of Living and a book on her life in the arts is in the works.

Brigitte Bardot for Museum Masters

We are proud to announce the new partnership between Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Goldberg of Museum Masters. Sid Maurer's Endangered Species Collection will also be exhibited to highlight Bardot's lifelong crusade against animal cruelty.

The Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) will be the major beneficiary of revenue generated from sales of merchandise, prints, paintings and a portfolio of Brigitte created by master artist Sid Maurer and renowned photographers. MMI, with international credentials in art marketing and licensing from Warhol to Haring to Picasso, to name but a few, will publish and distribute the collection.

From her beginnings as the seminal "sex kitten" Brigitte Bardot went on to great acclaim, conquering the world of the flesh with a pout, a cute accent and a physique that drove men wild. Victorious in that world, Mme. Bardot has turned to the spiritual realm of loving and caring for the earth and its endangered species', perhaps her greatest role yet.

THE FINE ART INTERVIEW
Marilyn Goldberg

By JAMIE ELLIN FORBES

Marilyn Goldberg’s father was a physician; a European immigrant speaking several languages — Polish, French, German Russian — who arrived in America with his wife Georgette from Paris in the 1940’s. He had a very personal vision of America, an eye for beauty and a wife he adored who resembled the great American beauty Marilyn Monroe. So when his daughter was born, naming her was easy: M-A-R-I-L-Y-N.

Ms. Goldberg has taken that gift — her first experience with branding — and her life honors her parents and the great Norma Jean yet carves out a place in the history of humanity that is particularly and uniquely her own. It isn’t that being a successful art publisher, merchandiser, and creative home designer, creator of legendary art programs for the likes of John Lennon, Picasso, Erté, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Tamara de Lempicka and enough others that to list them and note their accomplishments would fill many books, it is that Marilyn Goldberg employs her love of life, of imagination, of beauty into a potent elixir that we have come to call “The Creative Life.”

Living in this spirit is a full time experience for Ms. Goldberg, not an occupation. It is like breathing for her. Just as there is no peer or equal to the Icon status of Marilyn Monroe, in her field, which is her life, there is none who compares to Marilyn Goldberg. Her impact and vision as it pertains to her career in Art, Museum Exhibitions and Hampton Home Renovations, BRANDING from Mercedes, to Spiderman, to Campbell's Soup, to Marilyn Monroe's new MM Brand Logo; her newest series of MaraGold TV Animation, her style and her trademark,copyrighting, and licensing expertise world since the beginning of her career, have caused for international products she has developed and manufactured pertaining to the great artists, celebrates, and characters she has represented, and pioneered are unprecedented.

“She is the greatest promoter, and an excellent companion creatively,” says Giancarlo Impiglia, the Italian Futurist who, before Absolut made him a household name, had many publications done by Ms. Goldberg with great regognition given him when she closed with The Metropolitan Opera for a limited series in the 1980’s. He also created a series of silkscreen prints and posters for Marigold that were literally everywhere; starting with her shows for him at her Southampton gallery named for her son Garett and run by her two sons Garett and Darren Goldberg who beamed with pride at being “in business” as youngsters.

In 1985, when Artexpo was a the biggest show in town, people lined up at the doors of the old New York Coliseum and when they opened, many made a beeline for the Marigold Enterprises booth. Her art and art-related merchandise literally sold out moments after the show opened. People built careers and art galleries based on her intuitive ideas and plethora of creative merchandise. Marigold Enterprises, with Ms. Goldberg as founder and president, was a burgeoning-firm with seemingly limitless projects involving the marketing of art in varied media. She built an industry and lifestyle from art that was the treasured gift of any home, from her porcelains made in Germany to her carpets and tapestries from Denmark.

She is a reservoir of artistic ideas and when you talk with her. the enthusiasm she generates for art, artists and her projects is more than contagious — it is powerful. Yet with all the push and hype necessarily surrounding a business that will take a Picasso painting and exquisitely reproduce it with hand drawn border designs on a scarf or tie pattern to be sold from Bloomingdales to Henry Bendels, there is an even more intense feeling one gets from Marilyn Goldberg: a positiveness detected in her genuine love and admiration of good art and good artists.

Oct 4th 2006: Marilyn Goldberg, President of MMI, was the guest hostess who initiated the opening of the Tamara de Lempicka retrospective at the Palazzo Reale, Milano,

on behalf of the artist’s granddaughter Victoria de Lempicka. The exhibition marked the return of Tamara 80 years after her very first solo exhibition in the same location! There

was an overwhelming response from the public(see below) and in the press, including a large feature in Italy’s “CHI” magazine.


Tamara de Lempicka Retrospective at Musee des Annees 30 (Museum of the 30s)

Following the success of the exhibits at the Royal Academy, London and the Kunstforum, Vienna, a major exhibition of Lempicka’s works will be unveiled in Paris during Spring of 2006. Lempicka continues to rise in original painting value from the international exhibition exposure. The era of Deco has created a new renaissance..




Licensing 2005, Javits Center, NYC

Announced release of Collection Royal Palace, Taiwan. Marilyn Goldberg, president MMI, was guest of honor and conducted interviews for Taiwanese television.

Lempicka News:

One of MMI’s long-term projects has been the development and growth of the public’s awareness of Art Deco Icon Tamara de Lempicka, on behalf of the Estate. Lempicka’s visionary artwork epitomizes the decadence and glamour of Paris in the 1920s and 30s.

MMI collaborated with London’s Royal Academy, during the spring of 2004 to organize the first major Lempicka retrospective in the UK. Her elegant and extravagant lifestyle was documented in its totality by this stunning exhibit which featured 55 works loaned from various galleries and private collectors.

MMI represents and honors Victoria de Lempicka, granddaughter of Tamara, and made all necessary arrangements for European press and media to interview Victoria, who arrived in London to open the exhibition on May 18, 2004. Eleven years of work went into preparing the details that formed the possibility of this great event! Marilyn Goldberg, President of MMI, and Jason LeBlond, Creative Director, were noted in the Royal Academy’s catalogue raisonné for their excellence in set-up of exhibition needs.

MMI developed all the merchandise for the RA’s gift shop, which included a high quality stationery line of calendars, agendas, notebooks, greeting cards, bookmarks and posters by LEM Art Group of Milano, Italy. RA, under official license through MMI, also featured an exhibition catalogue, postcard book, refrigerator magnets, exhibition poster, fashion tops & knickers sets, tote bags and a music cd with tunes from the Art Deco era. In Tamara “larger then life” fashion, an enormous banner utilizing a dramatic photo of Tamara circa 1938, provided by MMI, was displayed outside the exhibition entrance. (Pictured Below.) The retrospective next completed a successful run at The Kunstforum Museum, Vienna in September of 2004.

Further enhancing the nouveau boom of Art Deco was a separate exhibition celebrating the entire Art Deco époque, which traveled from London’s V & A to San Francisco’s Legion of Honour and finally MFA, Boston. Tamara’s “Jeune Fille en Vert (Girl in Green)” was the enticing cover girl for all promotional materials for this exhibition. The assorted exhibitions stimulated a myriad of new licensing venues for this incredible painter and incredible woman, who was so ahead of her times!

In May of 2004 Tamara’s “Portrait of Mrs. Bush” set an auction record, hammering in at $4.5 million dollars!
