Circa 1955

About

Painted circa 1955 by Victor Di Gesu, (American, 1914-1988). Stamped verso with Victor Di Gesu Estate stamp and bearing Di Gesu Estate wax seal. Displayed in a delicate and period, carved-wood and gesso, water-gilded frame. Framed Dimensions: 26 x 19½ x 1½ Inches A lyrical, Post-Impressionist still-life of flowers loosely arranged in a green vase and standing on a table in an interior. An exceptional work by this well-listed California artist, painted in Di Gesu's intuitively subtle palette and expressed through his characteristic bravura brushwork. 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 Modernist artists including F. Tolles Chamberlain and Maynard Jepson. 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 both Matisse and Gauguin, retained a verve and spontaneity that remained uniquely his own. A prolific artist, Di Gesu was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes 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 among others.
