The “Entertainer” at the Easel

The clown genre by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-85) is among the world’s all-time best.

A wannabe jester himself, Diego loves to clown around, as you see in these two images followed by “The Clown” for which there is a $30,000 Reward offered.

Helga Voci who was beside Diego from 1960 to 1985 says “Diego liked to be entertaining and do funny things, stupid things”.

Maybe that’s why Diego was so fascinated with clowns, of which he painted many from memory.

#Diego Drew Every #Waking #Minute

Brandon Katryna Benson recently posted this original drawing titled “Die Mutter bit Kind (Mother and Child)” for sale on eBay.

P1060015

The buyer of this exceptional drawing received the piece with glass that was completely shattered but fortunately after cleaning away all the shards of glass the drawing was unharmed.

Just a few years ago, the times have changed when no one knew who Diego Voci was on the internet and now paintings are frequently posted on various sites for sale and sold to new buyers of new generations.

In art, often the sign of a great artist is their ability to draw… and Joy Gibson Naffouj, the Canadian art dealer representing Diego during his art career … quoted…”Diego’s hand is so fast it disappears as you watch.”  Tony Voci, nephew of Diego, observed during his 1957 trip in Europe with his uncle… “Diego drew every waking minute“.

Drawing of this nature is done by Diego with certainty of line is complete in just a few minutes.

This Mother and Child subject matter is in memory of Diego’s trip to the Navajo Indians.
