NOT ALL NUDES ARE BEAUTIFUL… OR ARE THEY?

Matisse and DIEGO in one IMAGE for Social Media Aug.2.2014

Henri #Matisse and #DiegoVoci were fascinated with the female body, as many master artists were. The #Odalisque in Red Pants Matisse nude, on left valued at $3 million had been stolen, FBI recovered. #Donna Seduta #nude on right was done by #Diego in 1971, oil on wood accented by strokes of Diego’s palette knife scarring the paint. Diego felt all female bodies are beautiful.   (See #Euronews video: http://www.euronews.com/2014/07/09/venezuela-recovers-stolen-matisse-painting/ )

Coop #Cooprider, Diego Historian, wrote in “The Beauty of Diego”*:

 “Every person has their own perception of beauty. In 1974 Diego described with
heavy Italian accent, the beauty he sees in the female:

“A man look at woman, this is cerebral feeling. When I like fat woman, I build Venus that way. I like skinny woman, I build Venus that way.”

Diego was smitten by the beauty of all females.”

BELIEVE IT OR NOT  . . . SOME CRITICS CHOSE THE #FAKE“MATISSE”

            ABOVE is NOT the real $3 million dollar Matisse!     THIS IS:

Odalisque a la culotte rouge - 1925

Odalisque a la culotte rouge, Henri Matisse 1925

The next question to consider is how does one price beauty when not a Matisse? One zero less than $3 million dollars? Two zero’s less? Three zeros? Good art is priceless.
