John Paul Getty was an American businessman who has a net worth of $2 billion at the time of his death in 1976. John Paul Getty acquired his net worth as the founder of Getty Oil Company. Getty was born into his father's (George Getty) petroleum business but made a name for himself as one of the first people in the world to have made over $1 billion. After graduating in 1914, Getty ran his own oil business and by 1916 had made his first million dollars. By 1957, Getty was named the richest living American, and by 1966 he was named the world's richest private citizen with an an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion. A great lover of art and antiques, Getty formed J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California. The Museum is part of the J.Getty Trust which is the world's wealthiest art institution worth $5.6 billion, as of 2011. The trust also operates the Getty Foundation, The Getty Research Institute and The Getty Conservation Institute. In the 1950s, Getty moved to England (into a 16-centuary Tudor estate, Sutton Place) where he continued to operate Getty Oil and other business interests. He remained there until his death in 1976. At the time of his death, Getty was worth more than $2 billion.
Sir John Paul Getty KBE (7 September 1932 ??? 17 April 2003), born Eugene Paul Getty, was a wealthy American-born British philanthropist and book collector. He was the elder son of Jean Paul Getty, Sr. (1892???1976), one of the richest men in the world at the time, and his wife Anne Rork. The Getty family's wealth was the result of the oil business founded by George Franklin Getty. At birth he was given the name Eugene Paul Getty, but in later life he adopted other names, including Paul Getty, John Paul Getty, Jean Paul Getty, Jr. and John Paul Getty II. A long-time Anglophile, He became a British citizen in 1997. In 1986, he was awarded an honorary knighthood for services to causes ranging from cricket (a sport he came to love despite his American upbringing), to art and to the Conservative Party. His honorary knighthood became substantive when he became a British citizen. In 1998 he changed his name by deed poll when he renounced the first name Eugene and wished to be known as Sir Paul Getty, KBE.
His father expected him to prove himself: his first job was pumping gas for $100 a month. He attended St. Ignatius College Preparatory and the University of San Francisco, both Jesuit schools, but did not complete his graduation from university. He was drafted into the U.S. Army to serve in Korea.[citation needed]
His first marriage was to Abigail "Gail" Harris, a former water polo champion. They divorced in 1964, having had four children including John Paul Getty III and Mark Getty.
His second marriage was to the Dutch actress, model and style icon Talitha Pol (stepdaughter of Augustus John's daughter Poppet) on 10 December 1966. The two posed for an iconic photograph on a roof-top in Marrakesh, Morocco in January 1969. The photo, taken by Patrick Lichfield, shows Talitha Getty crouched down leaning on a wall and her sunglassed, hooded husband in the background. The photo appeared in American Vogue and again in the September 1999 issue of American Vogue and is
