Fine Art/De Carlo painting


I can see you've fielded a number of questions about Keith De Carlo.Thay all concern lithos (which I have a few of) but, I have in my posession a painting by him dated 74 and the word Kuropatwa next to it.If you have any info on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Alejandro Kuropatwa (19562003) was a famous Argentine photographer. Born in Buenos Aires, in a family of Jewish immigrants, in his youth he studied photography at the Fashion Institute of Technology (New York) between 1979 and 1982. He then went back to Buenos Aires where he developed his career as a professional photographer. During the eighties and nineties, he became famous for his pictures of main Argentine rock stars such as Charly Garcia, Gustavo Cerati and Fito Pez. Due to his festive lifestyle and extravagant personality, he was know as the "Argentine Andy Warhol". Kuropatwa was also known for having survived AIDS for more than 20 years. He discovered the affection in 1984. After being close to death many times, a new generation of anti AIDS drugs stabilized his health and made him survive for many years. In 2002, Kuropatwa won the Konex Award as the most influential Argentine photographer of the nineties.[1] That same year, Kuropatwa made a huge exhibit of his lifelong work at the Buenos Aires National Museum of Fine Arts. Kuropatwa died in 2003, at age 47.

So there must be some connection between the two, I just haven't found it yet.

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
