WELCOME TO THE COOPRIDER FAMILY COLLECTION
"Buy only what you like"
We surely did. The Cooprider Family Collection is about 300 pieces with 240 images displayed here. Patti and I have enjoyed 61 married years together both addicted to the world of art, and buying what we like. In 2018 both of us began treatment for the big "C" word.
Remember the saying "When you see, (at ages 80 and 84), the light at the end of the tunnel, you hope it is't another train coming at you"? Our train is loaded with artwork speeding to it's ultimate end, and each work of art wants a home before that certain, but still unknown zero hour.
See what you like? Make an offer. All prices are negotiable. Individual or the entire Lot.
WHO ARE WE?
Patti and I both art aficionados, were married in Montana on Valentine's Day 1959. In 1965 we moved to Europe where Patti became an art history major grad of U of MD, exposing us to museums from the Prado in Madrid to the Pushkin in Moscow and art fairs from Basel to the FIAC in Paris. Arnold Herstand helped us choose lots of quality art. Our only boy of 7 children became permanently disabled in 1989 in Germany. We had to sell most of our major works, Picasso drawings (3) Miro Gouache, Lipschiltz bronze sculpture, large Leger, Chagall oil, Dali erotic double sided drawing, and more; Derain, Hundertwasser, Juan Gris. etc. All gone. We still have the best canvas that Trampedach did, purchased at the FIAC in Paris 1982, also a very large piece by Cienfuegos.
But hopelessly art addicted we continued to buy what we liked.
Now at age 84 and 80, with uncertain longevity, we must find new owners, or our kids will have a garage sale.
WHAT YOU’LL SEE WHEN YOU EXPLORE HERE:
Half the Collection is by the internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (Voh-chee 1920-1985). We had the dream that someday a generous benefactor would sponsor a major museum Diego exhibition. We searched the world for his works. At least 4 dozen are museum worthy.
The other half of the collection includes more prominent names: Oppenheim, Trampedach, Cienfuegos, Bengston, Tobiasse, Laudenslager, Guerrero, Farber; plus many who deserve to be prominently known such as David Baze, Robin Bright, Sean Sullivan, and award winning Hugo Crosthwaite:
