Modigliani was one of the modern master painters who inspired Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) “Artist of a Thousand Faces”.

Here is a work by Diego Voci from the collection of Jacqueline Risch of Germany that gives hints of the Modigliani influence while remaining distinctly Diego.

Träumerei 661-512 Oil on Canvas 50x40 cm 20x16 in.

Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia biography states:

Diego thrived on camaraderie as did other artists before him, such as Amedeo Modigliani, both “figurative” artists, both Italian born, both migrated to Paris.  Among Diego’s many facets was a drive never to be poor, never to live a tormented drug ridden life of Amedeo Modigliani who at age 35 “died in Paris exacerbated by poverty only one exhibition to his credit.” or the tortured life of Vincent van Gogh who died at age 37, with only one painting purchased in his lifetime. Diego greatly admired the exceptional work of both artists, but, unlike both artists who found few buyers for their work, in their lifetime, Diego did for his.
