COOP #COOPRIDER OFFERS $30K REWARD FOR #CLOWN by DIEGO

Diego Voci

“This clown painted by the internationally collected artist Antonio “Diego” Voci, (1920-1985) was stolen in Otterbach, Germany in the early 1980’s from what was then my office.”

“The Clown” (medium size painting) was for me the icon representing the depth of Diego the man. Study this painting. Feel the pathos. You’ll begin to know the magnetism to which certain addicted collectors such as me succumb.”

“As the authorized Diego Voci Historian (volunteer) for the Diego Voci Estate, (solely owned by his widow, Helga Voci), we are looking forward to the day a generous benefactor sponsors a Major #Museum Diego Voci Exhibition.”

THE #BRAIN #CHEMISTRY OF #ARTISTS

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci 1920-1985, speaks of her experience of her late husband. #Diego liked to be “Seen” and “Be Seen” at the finest of places… all money made from his art.
“I must say at that time I had met many artists who were quite poor, they were all seriously working, they mostly had small ateliers, no comfort, happy when they sold a painting, and then invited the others. And when they didn`t sell – just eating bread and black coffee. Nobody had a car, in fact DIEGO was called: “el pintor con coche” (which means- the painter with a car) . So, when I heard DIEGO inviting me in his car I thought: this man is showing off, besides the car he was very well dressed, like a businessman.”

#Diego – Der Künstler und sein #Model

When you need money, I go paint some”, common words from Diego to Helga. Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, shares some moments of Diego.

“Diego did not get so much excited when he sold a painting, he knew he needed the money to pay the bills, but money did not really interest him, he wanted a good life, nice Restaurants, Holidays, good Hotels, pay his bills, the house, etc. but he never was interested to save money, he did not care, as long as I [Helga] had a comfortable life and Alessandra [daughter] had everything she needed, everything was fine.”

The truth is if Diego could look down and see today;

The only things left for his widow and daughter at his death in 1985 were “some paintings and debts”. Helga at 78 with a daughter with Crohn’s Disease, is still working as a framer of other peoples’ art to meet expenses…
…THEREFORE, Helga is now offering the one piece dear to her heart she said she would never sell; The self portrait of Diego.

In this rare self portrait of Diego (Der Künstler und Sein Model, oil on canvas 32″ x 24″), surrounded by his love for art and his inspirations is offered on the Diego Voci Project website for 6000 Euros. Here is the link and explore the inspirations and intimacies of Diego Voci. https://www.diegovociproject.com/_p/prd4/4674134593/product/der-kunstler-und-sein-model

Diego Voci; 60 x 50 cm oil on canvas (polaroid image of painting)

The internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) is known as “The Artist of a Thousand Faces”.  Diego claimed he painted them all from memory.   The exception was his time doing caricatures, when he would complete 20 in two to three hours.  Helga, Diego’s widow, remembers “People would stand in line waiting their turn.  They loved him.  When we met in Paris and we needed money Diego would go away with a pad of 20 sheets of paper, and come back with money.”

We know this masterful painting was purchased in Diego’s studio for $450 on 4th April 1981.  Please tell us if you have any clue of the owner of this painting or any information on this painting?
