An 'eccentric' co-owner of a high-end New York art gallery plunged to her death from the roof of the building which housed her business. Marijana Bego, 54, was found lying in the middle of Madison Avenue after falling from the top of the five-story building in the Upper East Side, home to her Bego-Ezair gallery on Madison Avenue.

Police believe she committed suicide, according to the New York Post. Ms Bego, originally from Switzerland, owned two other New York galleries, which were frequently visited by members of high society such as the Hearst family and descendants of Winston Churchill, said the paper. Renowned for featuring up-and-coming talent in her galleries, Ms Bego was in business with real estate executive Khedoury Ezair.

News of her death, which detectives at first believed was caused by a hit-and-run accident because if severe injuries to her legs, has sent shockwaves through the New York art scene. A close friend told the paper: 'I just can’t believe she would jump. Maybe its just the stress of the season. 'She was very outgoing and edgy because that’s the nature of this business. She dressed very edgy, presenting herself to be younger than she really was.'

Artist Wanda Murphy said Ms Bego sold one of her paintings for $30,000.

'Her focus in life was art,' she said.

'That’s all she ever lived for.'

R. Couri Hay, whose PR firm represented Ms Bego’s gallery had known her for 10 years, and added she was always 'extremely high-strung and eccentric, and kind of kooky'. Earlier this year, Ms Bego celebrated her 300th art opening, with a collection of oil works by Lash called Imagined Memories — A Family Album. The friend who spoke to police said she last saw Ms Bego at a gallery showing in October, and that she appeared to be in good spirits.

Ms Bego was pronounced dead at Lenox Hill Hospital, having suffered multiple injuries,

I see a lot of people saying they'd "give" family members money.

Thats not what you want to do.

You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

  • Maybe she should've gotten more in touch with her namesake.

    But she seemed like a happy person in all her pictures. She did look good for 50-something.

    And high-level art is such a good hustle, you wouldn't think it would be $ problems.
