Peter Marino’s Private Collection of Bronzes to Go on Show at The Wallace Collection

LONDON.- Peter Marino’s exceptional private collection of bronze sculptures will go on show to the public for the first time at London’s Wallace Collection, 29 April – 25 July 2010. Marino is one of the world’s leading architects. Andy Warhol and Yves St Laurent were amongst his first clients, when he founded his architectural practice in 1978, with initial commissions including the design of Warhol’s seminal Factory space and renovation of his New York townhouse. Friendship with Warhol furthered Marino’s interest in art collecting, a passion he has been able to develop both whilst sourcing artworks for domestic and corporate clients and through his work for international museums. Marino’s museum commissions have included designing the installation for the Sèvres Exhibition at the American Craft Museum and, to be unveiled in 2010, the Lalanne sculpture exhibition at Paris’s Mus
