Why We Love This

A period, cabinet-size still-life of russet and gold pears arranged on a red tablecloth. Painted circa 1955 by Victor Di Gesu (American, 1914-1988), a listed artist. Di Gesu estate stamp on verso. Winner of the Prix Othon Friesz, Di Gesu studied in Paris at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière with André L'Hote and, later, in Rome and Barcelona. He exhibited widely, including at the Louvre, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Unframed.

About McNaught Fine Art

A 1986 graduate of Christie's Fine Arts of London, I headed the fine art department of a West Coast auction house before opening my own gallery. Each painting I represent is selected with care. I believe fine art to be an integral part of life, illuminating both our vision and our values for our children. As time passes, our paintings become heirlooms, enriched with our shared memories. Many things come and go. Art abides. - Anthony McNaught
