#FRANCE DINGS TAXPAYERS A BILLION DOLLARS TO SEE #ART

FRANCE-ARCHITECTURE-ART-FONDATION VUITTON

Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris; 

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’S LAST HOURS – 33 YEARS AGO

Diego's last art work & smoking

That persistent urge to #draw that possessed #Diego from a young child carried into Diego’s last hours. The second weekend of December there was an open house in Diego’s home and studio; he was too weak to attend.  Yet he found the strength to draw one more piece for a door prize, his last work of art for the public, a cubist, ink drawing; followed by a small pencil sketch for Helga.

Diego, who smoked 40 cigarettes a day, succumbed to lung cancer 10 December 1985.

The resting place for Diego Voci is in Neuhof, Germany. On Helga’s periodic visits she shares her thoughts with both Diego and her mother beside him.

“FRIENDS” On The Wall & “FRIENDS” On The Couch

October 1972 Coops 36th Birthday

This October 1972 occasion was Coop Cooprider’s 36th birthday (on left).  The friends on the couch are Ingrid and Walter Nermerich, owners of “Alt Landstuhl Restaurant” in Landstuhl, Germany home of the famous Chateaubriand.

Friends” on the wall is an amazing work of art by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).  The painting was purchased from the private collection of Jawdat and Joy Naffouj, art dealers also in Alt, Landstuhl.  “Friends” has been on Coop and Patti’s walls as they moved around the world ever since.

Coopriders now own about 8 dozen or so Diego art paintings; several are earmarked for selection into a Major Museum Diego Retrospective once a generous benefactor comes forward.
