Born Barbara "Basia" Piasecka on 25 April 1937, in Poland, she graduated from Wroclaw University with a MA in Art History, and soon, she left Poland, with only $100. Initially hired as a cook by Esther Underwood Johnson, at the time the wife of Johnson & Johnson's heir J. Seward Jonson, Barbara turned out terrible in that position, so she switched several jobs within the family's chambermaid.

Barbara "Basia" Piasecka Johnson, born Barbara Piasecka (February 25, 1937???April 1, 2013) was a Polish-born American humanitarian, philanthropist, art connoisseur and collector.


Piasecka Johnson was born in Staniewicze near Grodno, Poland (now in Belarus). Her father was a farmer. She graduated from Wroclaw University with a M.A. in Art History. She left Poland in 1968, with just $100.
Piasecka was hired as a cook by Esther Underwood Johnson, then wife of John Seward Johnson I. Her cooking was terrible,[citation needed] so she switched jobs with the Johnsons' chambermaid.
One time seeing his admiration for one of the paintings he had bought, she said casually that he overpaid for it because it is not a picture of a master, but his disciple and by using the dates proved it. Johnson was shocked about her knowledge and expertise, and appointed her as consultant to his purchases of works of art. A year after she became Johnson's chambermaid, she became his curator for the Seward Johnson's art collection.
During this time J. Seward Johnson' engaged in extramarital affairs with Piasecka Johnson. In 1971, they married with none of Johnson's children in attendance. According to trial witnesses brought to court by J. S. Johnson's children during the proceedings concerning his will, Piasecka Johnson "often physically and emotionally abused her husband". Piasecka Johnson said she was a devoted wife for 12 years of marriage.
She was the primary beneficiary of his will and received the bulk of her husband's fortune after he died in 1983. Excluded from their father's will, Seward Johnson's six children sued on grounds that their father wasn't mentally competent at the time he signed the will. The case went to trial but was settled prior to return of a verdict, and the children were granted about 12% of the fortune, leaving Piasecka Johnson in control of the majority of the estate.
In 2007, Johnson was listed on the Forbes 400 World's Richest People lis
