#DIEGO #ART REVISION #NOT #PALETTE KNIFE!

Diego Voci; Donna Seduta 19 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ Oil on Wood Private Collection

“This is a unique face that never takes its eye off you, thinking what?  The paint is unusually heavy, probably to disguise the painting formerly existing under this one; applied to wood, rather crudely, but, overall, I would place in the category of very special.  Previously, it’s been noted as palette knife.  I see no evidence of that, rather a prominent texture of an aggressive artist hand marking bold indentations with the opposite end of his amazing brush.” – Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Art Historian 

The artist is internationally collected Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985)
