The Louis Vuitton Foundation in #Paris has been called a “gift to France.” But according to some critics, the private museum founded by billionaire art collector Bernard Arnault was a gift that came at a spectacular cost to French taxpayers. Now, an anti-corruption group has filed a complaint accusing the foundation of fraud and tax evasion in the Court of Auditors in #Paris, France’s financial taxation watchdog.
The final construction cost of the Frank Gehry-designed building on the edge of #Paris was nearly €790 million (around $900 million), according to French media, seven times the original estimate when Arnault first announced the project. This figure has been revised significantly upward since the museum first opened in 2014. At that time, the New York Timesreported that the cost was closer to $135 million. (The foundation declined to comment to artnet News about the final cost.)

Diego Voci; “Temperamento” oil on canvas #961-551 50x40cm
If you know of Michael Day, or are him, please contact the Diego Voci Project at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we continue the ongoing (volunteer) process of developing the history and legacy of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci we discovered that this small canvas “Temperamento” 50x40cm was a gift to Michael Day.
This unique surrealistic treasure centered around a face that carries its own mystery. Diego Voci, Artist of Thousand Faces shows up in all different styles. Surrealism happens to be a style where Diego pushed the boundaries.
We’d like to know more about the occasion for this generous gift.
