Oil on canvas painting showing the artist's wife, Janet, reclining on a red couch draped with a lilac blanket. Painted circa 1955 by Victor Di Gesu (American, 1914-1988). Di Gesu estate stamp and seal on verso. Winner of the Prix Othon Friesz, Di Gesu studied in Paris with André L'Hote at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. He exhibited widely and with success, including at the Louvre, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum. Very good: edge rubbing; unframed.
