CB2 introduces Art Patron, a new collection developed in partnership with the public by Portia de Rossi – Yahoo Finance | Dauktion

Highlighting both contemporary artists and historically significant works, the collection takes visual arts beyond the gallery with breakthrough technology.

CHICAGO, July 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, CB2 presents its collection with Art Patron by General Public, the art publisher founded by Portia de Rossi known for curating contemporary art from a diverse group of professional artists internationally. The brands are exclusively unveiling a first-ever collection from Art Patron, their new joint subsidiary, at CB2.



Born out of their shared vision of making fine arts accessible to all, the Art Patron collection at CB2 brings 57 modern and archival pieces to CB2’s growing catalog of art offerings. Contemporary pieces push boundaries through a range of styles and mediums to show the breadth of the art world, while archival pieces include still lifes and portraits in grand traditional style, all carefully sourced from renowned museums and famous flea markets around the world.

“Art is a crucial addition to a home and over the last few seasons we have steadily increased the choice and quality of our range,” said Ryan Turf, President of CB2. “Our new partnership with Art Patron by General Public takes our offering to the next level, allowing our clients to discover exciting pieces for their home through expert curation of diverse styles.”

Curated exclusively for CB2 by the founder and CEO of General Public Portia de Rossi and Creative Director Slater Herman, this new range includes photographs, reductive prints and Art Patron’s proprietary technology: The Synograph– the only printing process on the market capable of faithfully reproducing each artist’s unique brushstrokes. The result is a fully textured canvas with all the details and nuances of the original artwork.

“As an art lover and collector, I was intrigued by the concept of finding and sharing great works,” he said Portia de Rossi. “Our focus on thoughtful curation and commitment to new printing techniques is redefining how we collect art, so we were naturally drawn to work with CB2, a brand known for pushing boundaries in the world of contemporary design.”

Collection highlights

  • As part of this partnership, contemporary artists receive a royalty on their print sales – a promising kickstarter in the client’s journey to becoming a patron of the arts. Proceeds from the sale of archive items are donated to the Rijksmuseum.

  • The new catalog curates exclusive artworks in four groups – chromatic, monochromatic, warm and cool – making it turnkey for clients to experiment with art in their unique spaces.

  • This collection marks the first time that General Public has produced pieces by non-contemporary artists, using synograph technology to preserve this historically important art and bring it to new audiences.

  • The archival pieces in the range come from the Paris flea market and antique shops across the street Europeas well as a partnership with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

The Art Patron by General Public collection is now available exclusively at cb2.com and ranges in price from $499 to $2,799.
