In an overheated art market where anything seems possible, a painting of an outstretched nude woman by the early-20th-century artist Amedeo Modigliani sold on Monday night for $170.4 million with fees to Liu Yiqian, a former taxi driver turned billionaire art collector, in a packed sales room at Christie’s. It was the second-highest price paid for an artwork at auction.

The painting became the 10th work of art to reach nine figures under the hammer. The bidding was palpably tense, with six people vying for the lot, and it took nine minutes to sell, with the winning bid coming from the phone. Mr. Liu, who with his wife Wang Wei is among China’s most visible art collectors, confirmed on Tuesday that he is the buyer. He said he planned to bring the work back to Shanghai, where he and his wife have two private museums.

Modigliani nudes are regarded as among the ultimate trophy paintings of the 20th century.

Persons attracted to Modigliani are also drawn to the magnetism of artist DIEGO VOCI™.  This small Diego is part of the DIEGO VOCI™ ESTATE.  Available:  Link to www.diegovociproject.com; click “Acquire Originals”.

About the $42 million Modigliani:

“There were plenty of big-ticket lots peppered throughout the evening, highlighted in large part by Amedeo Modigliani’s beautiful and almost prim seated portrait “Paulette Jourdain,” from circa 1919, which sold to an anonymous telephone bidder for the top lot price of $42,810,000 (est. upon request in excess of $25 million). The unidentified, silver-haired under bidder sat in the fourth row of the salesroom, wedged between two blonde companions and sipping white wine during the bidding. The pony-tailed sitter in the painting was the maid and later companion/lover of Leopold Zborowski, Modigliani’s Paris dealer. The work was last exhibited in “Modigliani and His Models” at the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2006. It was one of Modigliani’s last portraits before his death in 1920 and #Taubman acquired the work from the Acquavella Galleries in 1983, the same year he acquired Sotheby’s with the help of several private investors, including Henry Ford II.”

THE BEGINNING OF ADDICTION TO DIEGO VOCI ART

Patti and Coop Cooprider Madonna & Child, 1966

Patti and Coop Cooprider Madonna & Child, 1966

1966, a young married couple, Americans living in Germany, bought their first “expensive” Diego Voci painting, “Madonna and Child”.  They bought it for $150 on layaway, 3 payments. That was a big chunk of their small budget at the time.

The artist Diego Voci was represented by Joy Gibson, a Canadian art dealer operating out of Zweibrucken, partnering with Dr. Jawdat Naffouj.

The Coopriders, Coop (he’s the skinny one on the left 6’2”) and Patti just could not stop at one (The Potato Chip Phenomenon).  They knew Diego and Helga through the years buying many more Diego’s.

Coop became the volunteer Diego Voci Historian in 1973 and began the volunteer Diego Voci Project in 2010, a property of the Diego Voci Estate, and in 2011 began the official Diego Voci Archive to search for and catalog all the lost Diego oil paintings scattered around the world.  We’ve identified approximately 1,000 of 4,000 so far.

Please help us find the rest.  Email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com

A GIFT OF OUR DAUGHTER AND OUR FIRST TRIP TO THE UNITED STATES!

“HELGA AND DIEGO”

by Helga Voci

Chapter 6 Part 1

“1970-1976”

“Diego was preparing an art show in Ravenna, Italy which was organized by Galleria Cairoli from October 30th to November 10th in 1970. We had a beautiful season, Italian lifestyle, sunshine, beach, and good Italian food.  After this exhibit we moved back to Germany in December of that year.

My parents were then building a house in Bavaria. Diego was drawing the plans and helped with the interior decoration. So we rented an apartment there from December 1970 until June 1972. At that time Diego still sent paintings to Naffouj, but he was not so happy anymore with the agreement, so we stopped and started doing the business ourselves.

For several years we worked together with Liliane Dussard, a French lady who had been working in Naffouj Gallery before and later on. I think in 1972 Christine Khan took over. I am still in contact with Christine.

In the meantime we moved from Bavaria to Schwetzingen near Heidelberg. There we had a little daughter, Alessandra (you can view a portrait Diego made of her in of the previous posts).   In 1976 we moved to Taunusstein near Wiesbaden, where we bought a house and where Diego lived and worked until his death in 1985. This house is where I still live today.

 5 October 2015 Alessandra and Pastel

Above: Pastel of Alessandra Voci when she was 8 years old, born 1974 and a recent Photograph of Alessandra today.

During that time, in 1973, we made our first trip to the United States. We bought a car in New York and we drove across the U.S. from N.Y. to San Francisco. We went to places like New Orleans and Albuquerque. We visited several Indian pueblos, where Diego started to make sketches of the Indians, because he thought they had very interesting faces.”

Let the DVP Team know at diegovociproject@gmail who Diego visited during his travels in the United States1973.

WHERE IS THIS CLASSIC #VOCI PAINTING?

Signature “Voci” early works 1960’s by Diego Voci.

The signature “Voci” is rare as most of the Diego’s works before 1965 (signed A.Voci). (see image above).  The “Diego” signature was signed for a 20 year period (1965-1985).  Historically, this painting is considered a prominent work of art as it was during a time period in Diego’s life when he painted at Schlossgalerie in Zurich, Switzerland.

This #Voci painting was first discovered on Artifact Collectors back in May 12, 2014. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-april-22-2013-6491218.html#78216.  It was posted under the name “Nadja”.  We have tried to contact without result.
This is an example of a work of art The Diego Voci Project would like to have in our Major Museum Exhibition (generous benefactor needed).

The all-volunteer non-profit Diego Voci Project Team is the only authorized Diego Voci Archive of all of the prolific work of internationally collected Antonio Diego Voci http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci.

CENTAURO HYGENE SECRET REVEALED… …HALF WAY

The Sanitary Secret Diego Didn't Know

It’s a shame internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) did not live to learn the Centauro cleanliness secret.  Diego portrayed Centauro in his “Dance of Death” on canvas (see below).

C82-5Centauro 32 x 24

You can help.  There are at least two to three thousand “Diego” signed paintings to be found scattered worldwide (signed “Voci” pre – 1965).  Over the past 6 years the Diego Voci Project has identified about a thousand of a total of 4,000.  We estimate at least 80% survived.

Please contact the Diego Voci Project Team at diegovociproject@gmail.com with any leads you may have on the discovery of Diego Paintings.
