This unique work of art by Diego titled “Cavaliere” has more than just the stature of a knight; “Cavaliere” has the essence of strength that Diego often portrayed in his paintings whether it be fisherman, laborers, and female nudes. The majority of Diego’s paintings harnessed a feeling of strength no matter what life looks like. Diego understood how horses connect with humans and painted horses of all genres… from realism to abstraction.
“Cavaliere”, 1972, was purchased by Walt Lawrence at Diego’s home / studio in Schwetzingen, West Germany. This painting has been in the Walt Lawrence’s art collection all this time (over 42 years). This is one of 11 Diego’s Walt Lawrence has in his collection. Walt recalls Diego as a genuine man who truly liked to invite people into his studio to see the process of his work whether the painting was finished or not.
