Giuseppe Dangelico, better known as Pino Daeni or simply Pino, was a figurative artist who revolutionized the illustration industry. His paintings are often set on vibrantly sunny Mediterranean beaches, similar to where he grew up. Pino’s style, known as Contemporary Realism, is characterized by softly lit subjects, warm colors, and flowing strokes that show detailed hands and faces. In his 20-year illustration career, Pino created more than 3,000 book covers, movie posters, and magazine illustrations. Highlighted in the Spring Fine Art, Antique and Ethnographic Auction, presented by The Cobbs Auctioneers, is an oil painting by Pino showing a group of four girls on a beach.
The sale also includes a selection of tribal and ethnographic works, including several pre-Columbian artifacts from Central America. Among these is a Tairona gold lidded vessel with a seated figure on top. Tairona gold figures are made by casting a meltable mixture of gold, silver, and copper into intricate molds. Through controlled corrosion, the copper is removed from the surface, giving the appearance of solid gold. View each of these lots and register to bid on Invaluable.
