4 DIEGO VOCI TREASURES FOUND AT ESTATE SALE – NUMBER 3

CLOWN VOR DEM ZIRKUSZELT” – Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) was a playful character. Diego, as he was best known, liked being at the center of the happenings! Described as “charismatic”, “worldly”, a “man’s man”, “empathetic” and “boisterous” in nature.  Diego did have a great sense of humor. No wonder Diego could whip out clowns with ease and fun! 

CLOWN vor dem Zirkuszelt for POST with Title et al 6 APR 2018Over the last 10 years the Diego Voci Project has been privy to many of Diego’s clown faces sent by many of you. Most we’ve seen and shared on social media are of the chest/neck upward always with great detail in the eyes and face. This particular clown includes a circus tent that is highlighted in the background and on the left some bright colored squares with hues of the sun fading into the sky.

Before Tom Catron won it at auction in South Dakota, Beverly Cowan had purchased Diego’s clown in Germany. Beverly was a teacher to 6th grade students for 5 years, she must have had a sense of humor to teach young kids in the 70’s!

Beverly’s clown does not exactly smile, but then again we’ve seen very few with smiles. Most DIEGO clowns have a neutral expression or even somber faces. Here a white cap is balanced with the broad wide collar, also emphasizing his make-up. The grand greenish bow tie with thin vertical red stripes is centered and bold. And, the eyes follow you once more, . . . now, see more DIEGO clowns:    https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/clowns-diegovocitm/

#MODIGLIANI BOUGHT BY CHINESE TAXI DRIVER $171MILLION

Modigliani Christie's Auction November 9 2015 BBC image

Straight from the #NYTimes

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/10/arts/with-170-4-million-sale-at-auction-modigliani-work-joins-rarefied-nine-figure-club.html?_r=0

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.”
