#DIEGO VOCI “FACES SERIES” PART TWO

The Artist of a Thousand Faces”  Antonio Diego #Voci (1920-1985) internationally collected artist is mostly referred to as “Diego”. Part Two, much like Part One, reflects the exquisite mastery of Diego’s versatility. Unknown to many Diego #aficionados he created what appear to be ‘portraits’ of real people who posed – Diego actually did most from memory. Diego’s figurative #art includes the clear precision of the detailed features in faces shown in Part One of the “FACES SERIES” (click on link at bottom of post).

Diego mastered #figurative, #abstract, #cubism, and fantasy faces such as clowns. Having traveled to the #Southwest of US in 70’s and early 80’s Diego was fascinated by #Native Americans, one shown here:   https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/?s=FACES&submit=Search

Group 2 Oct 21 2017

Having traveled throughout Europe and Morocco, Diego was also inspired by the indigenous people – again creating all from memory. Children were also depicted in various styles by Diego. Helga Voci, Diego’s widow, kept #Polaroids. The faded and definitely not as vivid as what you may have on your walls (or wish to have on your walls?)  Diego loved life and lived to paint. In his words,

“I must to paint. To me is important the white canvas.                                                     On the canvas I begin again. This is my life.”

Many more faces to come – and not only here – we have many more social media outlets like YouTube, #Pinterest, Facebook, and more!

#ARTISTS THAT #PAINT THE SAME #SUBJECT IN VARIED MULTIPLE PAINTINGS!

Dorf au Menorca and Casa di Contadini

Dorf au Menorca” and “Casa di Contadini” (both oil on canvas)

“Artists often paint multiple paintings of the same subject. #Picasso painted numerous paintings of Dora Maar and Marie Therese, Edward #Hopper used his wife, Jo, in most of his female subjects in paintings, #Bonnard also painted his wife in numerous paintings, Andy #Warhol did quite a number of Marilyn print, the same image but altered, #Monet painted dozens of haystack paintings, and multiple views of the Rouen Cathedral.”  Kathleen Grace, Artist, Art consultant, Instructor, former Museum Educator, Gallery Curator

“It’s quite common for an artist to paint a subject that you like working with in varied multiple paintings.”

#DIEGO (Antonio Diego Voci 1920-1985) was one of them! Here are two examples (above) of a similar landscape where Diego captured a similar feeling and essence in these two works.

#MODIGLIANI, EXHIBITION IN PARIS BRINGS TOGETHER WORLD’S GREATEST ARTISTS

Modigliani Red Hair Woman

Modigliani was one of the modern master painters who inspired Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) “Artist of a Thousand Faces”.

Here is a work by Diego Voci from the collection of Jacqueline Risch of Germany that gives hints of the Modigliani influence while remaining distinctly Diego.

Träumerei 661-512 Oil on Canvas 50x40 cm 20x16 in.

Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia biography states:

Diego thrived on camaraderie as did other artists before him, such as Amedeo Modigliani, both “figurative” artists, both Italian born, both migrated to Paris.  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.

#CUBISM SERIES BY DIEGO VOCI

When artists #GeorgeBraque, #Picasso, and #JuanGris created #cubistic #paintings it was often difficult even to the trained eye to identify which artist did the work. When Antonio #DIEGO Voci ventured into his cubistic mode he strived to be distinctively DIEGO.

Here are examples:

C5 Le Concert de Harliquin 1972 #660  23 34 x 32

Le Concert de Harlequins” 1970, 32″ x 23 ¾” , oil on canvas, signed “DIEGO” Private Collection

Spanish Table 27 25 x 19 34 Drawing Final

Spanish Table“, 27 2/5″ x 19 ¾”, mixed on paper, Signed “DIEGO” Private Collection

1st Email of Black and White Cubism Improved Image without Glass from CATSUP Heinz Bertram 26 May 2014

Ink on Paper“, 1985, Signed “DIEGO

Ink on Paper” is an important example historically because it was one of the very last works before DIEGO transitioned 3 days later. DIEGO drew this especially for what became his last exhibition, an open house at his residence the first week of December 1985. DIEGO remained upstairs in bed, too ill to personally attend.

Cubism - Christiane Hauk Genre Version

Cubism“, Signed “DIEGO” top Left hand corner, Private Collection (DIEGO was very generous giving away his art to people he was close to, for example this gift of a cubistic painting to Helga Voci’s sister.)
