About the artist
Listed as one of America's Top 100 Collectors by Art and Antiques Magazine, Cliff and Mandy began collecting art after becoming involved in the import of furniture from Italy.
Since this initial foray into the world of art and design, the Einsteins have developed one of the most formidable art collections in the country, profiled in HG, Australian Vogue, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and Art News among others. It includes work by James Turrell, Raymond Pettibon, Oscar Murrillo, Richard Prince, Chris Burden, Sigmar Polke and more.
Cliff has served on the Board of Trustees of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art and is currently Chairman Emeritus of MOCA. He has been awarded an honorary PhD from Otis College of Art and Design where he also served as a trustee, and is a lecturer on the creative process and the role of the arts in today’s society.
