Françoise Gilot (French, b. 1921)

Even at the young age of 21, Françoise Gilot was one of the most respected artists of the emerging School of Paris, a movement struggling for recognition during the years of The Occupation.

In 1943, during the time of her first important exhibition in Paris, Françoise met Pablo Picasso, an artist 40 years her senior. In 1946, Gilot and Picasso began a decade-long relationship and Françoise became both a witness and a participant in one of the last great periods of the modern art movement in Europe. Their circle included poets, philosophers, writers, and many of the legends of the art world, such as Braque, Chagall, Cocteau, and Matisse.


Officier de la Légion d'honneur
 

After nearly 70 years as an artist, Françoise Gilot continues to conquer canvas with her own language of form and color. Her work, done in a variety of media, holds a vital place in the international art world and represents one of the most exciting collecting opportunities in contemporary art today.

Gilot is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Musée Picasso in Antibes, Musée de Tel Aviv in Israel, the Women's Museum in Washington D.C., and Bibliothèque Nationale and Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris. In 1990 she received the
Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur, for her work as a painter, writer and feminist. In 2010 she was made an Officer of the Legion d'Honneur, the French government's highest honor of the arts.

This extraordinary collection honors thirty-eight years of exhibition history between Françoise Gilot and the Vincent Mann Gallery. The collection comprises important early artworks from the period
1940-1960, selected by Françoise Gilot from her personal archives. Many of these oil paintings, drawings, and mixed-media works have never before been exhibited in the United States.

The Vincent Mann Gallery is honored to present these rare artworks for sale in "Collection Privée: Early Works by Françoise Gilot 1940-1960."

Artist’s Statement: Ever since I can remember, I was always preoccupied with the study of the human body, pencil or brush in hand. At school, I made caricatures of the teachers and I tried renderings of the other girls’ attitudes - all of which usually ended up confiscated, and destroyed, I suppose... [READ MORE]

Jacob Vincent Manguno (American; 1925 - 2017)

Jacob Vincent Manguno, born in the lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, was as cosmopolitan a figure ever to have graced the New Orleans art scene. He attended Holy Cross High school until the age of seventeen when he enlisted with the U.S. Army Air Corps. His cadet training took him to Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, after which he was assigned to the Air Transport Command in Baracpore, India. He was a crew member on numerous flight missions over “The Hump,” crossing the Himalayas from India to Kunming, China until 1946. His flight jacket and other effects are now part of the permanent collection of the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

After his tour of duty Manguno returned to New Orleans and enrolled in the New Orleans Academy of Art, located at Orleans and Dauphine Streets in the French Quarter. He studied painting with Clarence Millet, an associate of the National Academy of Design, and with noted American regionalist John McCrady and modernist Leonard Flettrich. Manguno was president of the first graduating class of the Academy in 1949, and continued his friendships with these important New Orleans painters throughout their lives.


Officier de l'Ordre des Arts
et des Lettres

 

Following his graduation, he worked in advertising, becoming president of the Art Directors and Designers Association of New Orleans. He won numerous awards and became widely recognized as one of the nation’s foremost corporate designers.

At the time in life when most would have settled for success, Manguno began a new career as a fine art dealer, opening the Vincent Mann Gallery’s first location in 1972. In 1978, the French government awarded him the prestigious L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres medal of honor in recognition of his achievements in introducing French artworks to collectors and museums in the United States.

As an artist, Manguno’s unique paintings have a timeless quality drawn from his seven decades of dedication to the pursuit of aesthetic excellence, and through these artworks he leaves a legacy that is a reminder of the exquisite and beautiful world that is within the grasp of us all.

Luc Didier  
(French, b. 1954)

Born in 1954 in Goelzin (Nord) near Douai, Luc Didier is one of the finest living painters in France. Renown for capturing the vanishing countryside, he studied first with his father and has been dedicated to his profession since the age of 22. He debuted in several Salons including the prestigious Salon desIndépendants in Paris. The Vincent Mann Gallery in New Orleans first introduced Didier's paintings to American collectors in 1993.

Didier's work captivates the viewer with a dazzling technique that then reveals, with tremendous intimacy, the character and natural beauty of the most magnificent regions of France. Each subject is imbued with fullness, enriched by the memory of the painter. His gesture is decisive, his content always generous, each painting a timeless blend of Impressionist heritage and contemporary realism.

Luc Didier generously conveys to us these exquisite portraits of hidden corners, allées and waterways of rural France. Whether it is an intimate visit to the door of a fisherman's cottage on the Bay of Arcachon, the clarity of air on a high-summer day in Dennevy, or the piney scent of an entrancing dappled path in Corbigny, we are transported through the brilliance of his technique and the passion of his art.

His paintings have been acquired by discriminating art patrons worldwide, from France to New Zealand, England and other European countries. He is represented exclusively in the United States by Vincent Mann Gallery.

One of the most influential post-Impressionist artists, Pierre Dumont was born in Paris on March 29, 1884. Against the wishes of his father, Dumont enrolled at the Lycée Corneille; it was there he met Robert Antoine Pinchon and Marcel Duchamp who became lifelong friends.

In 1906, at the age of 22, Dumont held his first one man exhibition at Galerie Legrip, a Rouen dealer who promoted Normandy painters. Dumont's paintings confirmed his fiery temperament as a colorist and his departure from the influence of Impressionism. When the Fauve movement ran out of steam, Dumont took it upon himself to create a parallel salon. He united a "Group of XXX" with the first exhibition held at Galerie Legrip. Two years later this group expanded into the Sociéte de Peintures Modernes. Included were some of the most exciting artists of the time. Even Paris-based painters such as Utrillo, Vlaminck, Luce and Gillamin sent their works to Rouen for these exhibitions.

From 1914 - 1924 Dumont achieved great success with his paintings of street scenes in Monmartre, Notre Dame cathedral and the bridges of Paris. But in 1927 he suffered the first of many "cerebral attacks" which endured intermittently for ten years.

In February 1931, he was invited by Armand Drouant to hold an exhibition at 35 Rue de Seine. This was the last exhibition held while the artist was alive. His eyesight dimmed and his right hand paralyzed, Dumont painted with his left hand during his final years. He died in a Paris hospital in 1936 at the age of 52.

Roland Oudot (French; 1897-1981) is an important member of the group known as "Artists of Poetic Reality." This term, describing painters in France between the two World Wars, includes Oudot and his friends, Legueult and Brianchon. They sought the beauty in the real, as a departure from the stylistic Impressionist and post-Impressionist pioneers that came before them.

Oudot studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 1915 - 1918. Then followed an influential period when he worked with Leon Bakst, head painter for the Russion Ballet. Oudot was given assignments for murals, scenic design and costumes. His involvement with the ballet led to the world of interior decorating, where he designed fabric and furniture for the firm of Sue and Mare.

In 1918, he returned to the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs and the atelier of Eugéne Morand. Here he studied paintings by Marquet, Matisse and Duffrenoy while he prepared for his first exhibition, the 1919 Salon d'Automne.

By 1925, he was a member of the Committee for the Salon des Tuilleries where his paintings were shown. From then on, the artist was sought by collectors, and for fifty years his works were frequently shown in galleries in Paris, Brussels, New York, Pittsburgh, Sydney, London, Venice, and others throughout France and Switzerland.

He is represented in several museums in France: Musée d'Art Moderne and Cabinet des Étampes in Paris; Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nantes; and in Albi, Bagnols-sur-céze, Cambrai, Grenoble, and Cérés.
