About

Painted circa 1955 by Victor di Gesu (American, 1914-1988) and with Victor di Gesu estate stamp and impressed wax seal verso Winner of the Prix Othon Friesz, Victor Di Gesu first attended the Chouinard Art School in Los Angeles 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, Di Gesu settled in Carmel where he worked with a variety of artists, including F. Tolles Chamberlain and Maynard Jepson, and became an active member of the Carmel Art Association. An intuitive colorist, Di Gesu’s classical training and scientific research into color theory helped him to create vivid yet harmonious works which, while reminiscent of Matisse and Gauguin, retained a verve and spontaneity that remained uniquely his own. A prolific artist, Di Gesu was the recipient of numerous medals and juried awards, both in the United States and France. Over the course of a distinguished career, he exhibited widely and with success, including at the Louvre and the Exposition des Artistes Etrangeres in Paris, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Los Angeles County Museum.
