Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) captured the most out of his #muses, not only the faces of people he met but the culture and everyday life. In this painting, you see ladies “reading” and relating. Diego, who is the “Artist of Thousand Faces”, absorbed the different cultures he traveled to.
The elongated neck… #Modigliani was the first artist to create this diversion in figurative art. The elongated neck became an embodiment of character adding to Diego’s creation of faces.
Where is this painting now? And the original owner? Mr. Feldmann from Maryland (who originally purchased this painting back in 1977).
