THE GREEK ISLANDS AND THEIR ATTRACTIONS

 

STELIOS ORFANIDES ( 1918- ) MORE ON THE ARTIST ON SITE, PAINTED CIRCA 1950S

 

IF YOU NEVER BEEN TO MYKONOS, YOU WOULD PROBABLY WONDER WHAT IS THE ATTRACTION. I WONDERED SO MYSELF BEFORE I VISITED FOR A FEW DAYS. NIGHT LIFE SUPERB, WEATHER INCOMPARABLE AND CRYSTAL CLEAR WATERS WITH SANDY BEACHES. THEN, IF YOU FANCY SEEING THE TRENDY AND FAMOUS FROM CLOSE RANGE, THE LIKELIHOOD IS HERE IN MYKONOS!!

ALONGSIDE ALL THE NATURAL BEAUTY COME THE WINDMILLS AND WHITE HOMES OF MYKONOS, PLUS THE WELCOMING INHABITANTS OF THE ISLAND WHO RELY SOLELY ON TOURISM TO SURVIVE!!

MORE ON THE GREEK ISLANDS TO FOLLOW SINCE THEY ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GROUP OF ISLANDS IN THE MED AND PERHAPS THE TOP IN THE WORLD!!

MODIGLIANI TOPS ALL SALES RESULTS IN NEW YORK!!

Category: LATEST NEWS

IT WAS THE BEST, IT SOLD THE BEST AND THE INVESTOR IS STILL

RUBBING HIS HANDS

 

MODIGLIANI'S NUDE

THE MODIGLIANI NUDE AT SOTHEBY'S NEW YORK WAS BY FAR THE BEST I HAVE SEEN SO FAR AND FOR THOSE WHO KNOW BETTER THIS WORK OF THE ARTIST IS INDEED THE BEST OF THE SERIES OF NUDES.

WHEN THE INVESTOR PUT HIS MONEY DOWN SOME TEN YEAR AGO, HE PAID ONLY ABOUT TWENTY MILLION FOR IT. I AM SURE MR MAGNIER, THE OWNER, ENJOYED ITS PRESENCE, SHOWED IT OFF TO HIS FRIENDS AND CIRCLE AND WHEN HE FELT IT WAS TIME TO PART WITH IT HE PUT IT ON THE MARKET AND MADE A KILL. 

YES, IT WAS A COUP!!

OF COURSE IT WAS A MAJOR COUP. ANY WORK OF ART THAT SELLS FOR 157 MILLION DOLLARS IS A FIRST OR SECOND AND ANY WORK OF ART THAT RETURNS SIX TIMES THE INVESTMENT WITHIN SUCH A SHORT TIME IS INDEED A PRAISE TO THE INVESTOR, A PRAISE TO THE AUCTION THAT SOLD IT AND A GREAT BRAVO TO THE BUYER WHO I AM SURE WILL DO EXACTLY THE SAME IN A FEW YEARS TIME.

SELL HIS INVESTMENT AND KEEP THIS ICONIC PICTURE IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN!!

WELL DONE TO ALL CONNECTIONS FOR SUCH ADVERTISEMENT TO ART!!

THE STYLE MATTERS BUT THE CONTENT MATTERS MORE!!

Category: LATEST NEWS

ART IS A PECULIAR LIVING THING WE HUMANS LOOK TO FOR

INSPIRATION

MANY MODERNISTS AND ABSTRACT LOVERS OF TODAY WILL DISAGREE AND WILL LAMBASTE AN OLD SCHOOL BRAIN WITH IDEAS ROOTED IN THE EARLIER CENTURIES THAN IN TODAY'S THINKING AND POLITICALLY CORRECT OR IN THIS CASE ARTISTICALLY CORRECT.

TRADITIONAL ART IS STILL IN VOGUE BUT WHAT MATTERS MORE IS THE CONTENT AND HISTORY OF IT. HERE IS AN ARTIST WHO USED A GREAT STYLE TO PAINT, EVEN THOUGH NOT A NEW ONE, BUT HE BROUGHT ALONGSIDE IT A MIND OF A PATRIOT, WHO IN HIS PASSION AND HIS LOVE FOR COUNTRY AND ART, DELIVERED INIMITABLE VIEWS OF GREECE AND ITS ANCIENT TREASURES OF ATHENS. HE CHOSE THE CONTENT, HE CELEBRATED THE GREEK AND HELLENISTIC AND LEFT BEHIND A TREASURE FOR ALL TO ADMIRE!!

 

VASILIS ZENETZIS (1935-2016)
