Impressionism and hints of Macchiaioli, the Italian period, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macchiaioli , characterizes this work of art by Post-war European Impressionistic artist, Antonio DIEGO Voci, captures calm concentration portrayed in this figurative oil painting on burlap.
This painting came from the Private Collection of Naffouj Gallery, a longstanding contract during DIEGO’s mid-career stage as an artist.
LONDON.-Sotheby’s announced that Edgar Degas’ Petite danseuse de quatorze ans, estimated to fetch £10 – 15 million, will feature in the forthcoming Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale in London on 24th June 2015. Petite danseuse de quatorze ans is the most ambitious and iconic of Degas’ works and one of only a handful of bronze casts that remain in private hands – the majority are housed in major international museum collections, including Tate, London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Philadelphia Museum of Art and Museé d’Orsay, Paris.
Chris V. had it right when he said, “Each movement had its great masters, but there are very few who could create art unconfined by a single style like Diego.”
The Diego Voci Project just received a cubistic portrayal of Venice from Diego collectors Morton Family after waiting 40 years to find them again. They’ve owned a large Diego Collection since that time.
The Diego Voci Project has seen many exceptional cubist interpretations by Diego and “Gondole” ranks at or near the top. We have asked the Morton’s for a better image reproducible for the Diego Archive, but, we couldn’t wait to share this masterful Diego art work with all of our members of the Addicted Diego Collectors Club. Also to tempt the “New Generation” of art collectors to seek out and own a Diego.
Many of the original Diego collectors who bought directly from Diego (1965 thru 1985) are dead, dying or downsizing and their paintings are coming on the market everywhere. People in the know are buying at very low prices from people who don’t know the significance of Diego’s great body of artwork.
