Marche de Fleurs and Market Day

Happy #LaborDay!       Go To The:   #Market #marché #Markt #mercato #mercado

Internationally collected #artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) enjoyed the atmosphere of the open market in the many villages he traveled, the variety of people, the conversations, and capturing the stories from their eyes and their #faces, that he would later remember on canvas. (As shown here on faded polaroids provided by Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, she made these frames.)

“MARCHÉ DE FLEURS” was purchased by Captain Kuehn in March 1975. “MARKET DAY” was purchased by Ronald Harrington in April 1975. Where are they and their Diego’s now?

#VENUS #FAMOUS #DEATH IN #BATTLE

Content below is from page 5 of 8, 1974 Diego Catalog by Coop Cooprider, #DiegoVoci™#Historian.

A witty, gracious, confident man, DIEGO does not hunger for success.  He tells those who wish to exploit him, “You want to make me something in the sky with wings…go ahead.  You want to make me famous… go ahead.  But this is not my life.”

 “A man look at woman…this is cerebral feeling.  Venus is love god… who made her?  In reality Venus never existed.  I like for example fat woman… that’s the way I build Venus.  Or I like skinny woman… that’s the way I build Venus.  If I am important enough, that’s enough to influence 90% of the world.” – DIEGO, 1974

Recollections of Susan Max, daughter of Stephen and Wendy Max:

“As a young girl living in #Germany, I had the rare treat of going to meet a “REAL” #artist.

I was so excited!

 His name was Diego Voci and at first sight I recognized Diego’s #charisma. My nervousness subsided as he drew us into his world with his exceptional interest in each of us. He was very interested in the fact that both my middle brother and I read music and played instruments.

 Diego upon learning of our #musical training removed a #napkin and drew a treble clef on it asking us to explain what the clef symbol was and a sheet of music he had. What struck me was that during this visit the house he lived in was a #cornucopia for the #imagination. He graciously took us through the living and working area and I seem to recall an easel with unfinished work set up in the studio. 

 I remember Diego as a man that displayed so much interest in the world around him. I also remember him saying that you could #paint with #color, #light and #canvas. He had the ability to instantly draw you into his world and to include you into it.

 Much of my memories are that of an observer being let into a brilliant artists’ life. I remember how he also mentioned that I reminded him of a #painting he had done of a young girl and how my face shape was so similar. I remember being transfixed at the beautiful colors and the huge easels with work yet to be finished. On asking him when he painted, he responded when that he never knew when the urge would present itself and then as we were leaving Diego left and went in to the studio where he started to paint.

 I am so lucky to be influenced by such a brilliant and still current REAL artist.”

 Diego’s work truly expressed his poetical world and in so doing provides a never ending source of pleasure for us and his many admirers. –Stephen and Wendy Max December 1985

 

“ALL WOMEN ARE BEAUTIFUL” – Diego Voci

A man look at woman… this is cerebral feeling. Venus is love god … who made her? In reality Venus never existed. I like for example fat woman … that’s the way I build Venus. Or I like the skinny woman … that’s the way I build Venus. If I am important enough, that’s enough to influence 90% of the world.” – DIEGO 1974

VINCENT #VAN GOGH ON #PASSION:

VAN GOGH Quote and Image POST (3) 7 MAR 2016 Social Media

DiegoVoci™, internationally collected #Italian artist (1920-1985) was raised to know the significance of caring for his family. DiegoVoci™ Historian since 1973, Coop Cooprider, during interviews with Diego, his wife Helga, and numerous family members, was reminded that Antonio Diego Voci wanted a different life than #VanGogh and #Modigliani. Here an excerpt from the DiegoVoci™ #Cooprider Biography:

“Among Diego’s many facets was a drive never to be poor, never to live a tormented drug ridden life of Amedeo Modigliani who at age 35 “died in Paris exacerbated by poverty only one exhibition to his credit” or the tortured life of Vincent van Gogh who died at age 37, with only one painting purchased in his lifetime.

Diego greatly admired the exceptional work of both artists; but, unlike both artists who found few buyers for their work, in their lifetime, Diego did for his.”

#MAX and #DiegoVoci™ and “THE MUPPETS”

Part Six of Stephen and Wendy Max’s experiences with DiegoVoci™

“Diego’s gregarious personality, his love of company and conversation combined, was the magic of Diego’s art.  His personality was in his art.  I recall from a conversation while relaxing after a busy first day, our talk shifted from travelling experiences to some dialogue around our entertainment industry, in particular, television and what programs were currently offered for children.

I explained that one of the most popular shows of the day was a production of #Jim Henson’s Muppets.  This led to a lengthy discussion around the show’s concept and the characters.  Primarily slowed by my clumsy attempts at describing the show.  It provided to be a daunting task, explaining something like “#The Muppets”, especially, “#Kermit the Frog” and his hosting duties with “#Miss Piggy”.  Diego was intrigued making an entry in our guest book, immortalizing “#KERMIE” in our home, shown above!”
