■JPMorgan Chase Art Collection | JPMorgan Chase & Co.
The JPMorgan Chase Art Collection began in 1959 when David Rockefeller, then president of The Chase Manhattan Bank, established the firm’s art program and took the lead in the field of corporate art collecting. By integrating artwork with the architecture of new buildings and incorporating an enlightened approach to acquisitions, this forerunner of corporate collections became a model for other companies worldwide.
Today it is one of the oldest and largest corporate art collections in the world, focusing on modern and contemporary painting, sculpture, works on paper and photography, which continue to be the portfolio's strength. This core collection is enhanced by a diverse and eclectic range of objects from every country in which JPMorgan Chase does business, offering a unique perspective on the firm’s culture.
