Alice Walton is the daughter of Walmart’s founder, Sam Walton, who passed away (1992), from whom she inherited much of her fortune and became the wealthiest woman on earth. Unlike her brothers, she has kept a distance from the management of this supermarket holding where it is not exactly well seen by most employees, considering it a wasteful and insensitive person to the problems of the workers of the company.
Walton has a special penchant for the collection of expensive works of art, is fond of painting and was a breeder of horses. His personal collection includes works by Picasso, Andy Warhol, John Singer Sargent, Norman Rockwell, Winslow Homer and Georgia O’Keefe, among other artists. In 2011 she opened the Museum of Glass Bridges in Arkansas at a cost of 50 million dollars, where she exhibits her millionaire paintings.
