Sorry, this product is no longer available on Dering Hall.

Victor Di Gesu (Massachusetts/California; 1914- 1988) Seated Nude, circa 1955 Oil and graphite painting on paper Unsigned Includes an artist estate stamp to the verso An oil and graphite painting on paper titled Seated Nude by listed artist Victor Di Gesu (1914- 1988). This painting features a post-Impressionist nude figure rendered with energetic brushwork. It is unsigned and includes Victor Di Gesu estate stamp to the verso. Winner of the Prix Othon Friesz, Victor di Gesu first attended the Chouinard Art School before moving to Paris where he studied with Andre L’Hote at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere. He subsequently attended the Escuela de Belles Artes in Barcelona before furthering his studies in Italy. Returning to California, he worked with a variety of artists including F. Tolles Chamberlain and Maynard Jepson. An intuitive colorist, Di Gesu’s classical training and scientific research into color theory helped him create vivid yet harmonious works which, while reminiscent of Matisse and Gauguin, retained a verve and spontaneity that was uniquely his own. A prolific artist, Di Gesu was the recipient of numerous medals and juried awards, both in the United States and France. He exhibited widely and with success, including at the Louvre Museum and the Exposition des Artistes Etrangeres in Paris, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Los Angeles County Museum. CONDITION: Excellent condition based on age and usage. Some toning, minor surface marks, and some dirt residue to the reverse. DIMENSIONS: 8.75" W x 11.25" H x 0.1" D
