As featured on CNN, Saint Tropez-based artists Gerard Le Roux got alot of attention after painting Princess Diana in his studio one week before her death two years ago. Ever since then, the artist's work has been praised and its value has subsequently increased (according to Investor Magazine). As an investment, Le Roux' paintings have been consistently increasing in value at 20% per year.
Gerard Le Roux has exhibited all over the world, including New York (at the Lincoln Center in 1989 and at the Statue of Liberty Museum). Additionally his latest retrospective in June of 1997 at l'Orangerie du Jardin du Palais du Luxembourg attracted over ten thousand people. The U.S. Department of Interior honored Le Roux by making him the first painter to officially work on Ellis Island. In 1984 Le Roux donated one of his historical paintings to the White House. That piece, entitled "The Longest Day," commemorated the 40th anniversary of D-Day. This celebrated Saint Tropez artist's paintings are sought after by great collectors, including former French President Francois Mitterand.
The painter/sculptor's latest project is a 30-foot giant bronze sculpture that he is donating to the city of New York. Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be annoucing it to the press in the upcoming weeks.
