THE #JOURNEY OF "L'ARLEQUIN TRISTE" BY #DIEGO UNFOLDED

Diego Voci; “L’Arlequin Triste” oil on canvas #5812-174

This painting L’Arlequin Triste by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) was wrapped in packaging for 40 years (owned by the original owner of Talbert’s Kleine Galeria in Tacoma, WA.).

Days ago… this painting L’Arlequin Triste arrived to its new owner, packing material removed and looks as if DIEGO had just finished painting this piece.

From the archives of Helga Voci, she shares her words her travels with Diego during the 1980’s to the United States. “On that trip in 1980 we went to N.Y. and Philadelphia where Diego has family still today. We also went to Tacoma, Washington, where Diego had an exhibit in a gallery called – Talbert`s Kleine Galerie in Gig Harbor, WA. Then on to San Francisco, New Orleans, Albuquerque. And again we drove to Colorado Springs. Along the way, we visited with many American friends we had met in Germany. At several places, we had private shows. We both liked the United States very much.” https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page2.html#44298

#ONE #GERMAN #PAINTING #TAUGHT ME HOW TO #VISIT A #MUSEUM

Christoph Paudiß, Ein Marodeur (A Marauder) (1665). Image: Ben Davis. a student of Rembrandt, carrying the Dutchman’s style of poignant chiaroscuro with him back to the German lands.

What One Mysterious, Easily Overlooked German Painting Taught Me About How to Visit a Museum in the Age of Blockbusters A Marauder stands for the best-case fate for the typical piece of art in a museum—which then also makes it stand for the typical condition of “Art” when you strip away the myth of its transparent timelessness. That fate is not to vanish. It endures. But it’s also not to inspire lasting ecstasies of interpretation or to summon crowds. Instead, it is to be present but not present, lurking in the shadows, waiting for the moment when it might actually be seen and known.

Disclaimer: “Although I disagree with politics, I do believe he is this century’s genius for political portrayal and choose to honor him for his brilliant art ability. This image is one year old, but with only one name change is up to date with current events.” Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Art Historian

Diego Voci was also a brilliant cartoonist, but, so little has been found because he only signed his serious works of art. Click on link to view:

#BTS (BEHIND THE SCENES)

Diego Voci; A Moment of Reflection in his Studio

An extraordinary video created by Stephen Max (volunteer for The Diego Voci Project). Go behind the scenes in Antonio Diego Voci’s (VOH-chee 1920-1985) studio. Each day when Diego painted was always a mystery as to what he would create because his skills and talents were outside the bounds of one style.

“Each movement had its great masters, but there are very few who could create art unconfined by a single style like Diego.” – Christopher Voci.
