Viveca Paulin’s – Bio
Viveca Paulin was born on April 24, 1969, in Askim, Gothenburg Municipality, Sweden.

In 1991, Paulin graduated from Pomona College – a California-based liberal arts college located in the city of Claremont. There, she obtained a degree in Art History.

However, as her career progressed, Paulin’s interest moved from just auctioning out items to collecting them herself.

Owing to her efforts, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has acquired over 30 notable works so far.
