How many facets to a diamond?

Often it was said “Diego” has too many styles.  Collectors of the works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) own and treasure works in several “facets” ranging from realism, cubism, fauve, impressionism, and yes surrealism, and in which Diego excelled.

Diego was always experimenting.  https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/

The Diego Voci Estate has just discovered lost images of about a dozen wonderful surrealistic examples of Diego’s exceptional talent which we will share with you over the next few weeks.  If you know an owner, contact us at diegovociproject@gmail.com.

#DIEGO #FACES SERIES – PART FOUR

Once again we want you to see Antonio DIEGO Voci’s versatility in our part four of the #Faces series. Note the drama of the #Pierrot to the calmness of the #Mother and Child. Note also the sense of young versus old.  Best is how Diego could render the surreal with tenderness and beauty in  “Mädchen mit #Mandoline” owned by Barbara W.
