#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.)

C71 NUDE cubism 1971 31 .5  x 23.75

Nude Cubism“, 1971, 31 ¾” x 23 ½”, oil on canvas, Signed “DIEGO” Private Collection

#DIEGO #Voci #1979 #Art #Catalog

… Wiesbaden, Germany is a city of #culture and beauty. #Tourists from all corners of the #world can be found walking and shopping on the #famous Wilhemsstrasse. It is there that Siegfried #Dahms displayed magnificent works by #DIEGO in his luxurious #gallery.

See 2 pages (below) from a catalog designed by Adolph #Merkt from #Taunusstein (the town where DIEGO’s widow Helga continues to live in the home where she and DIEGO lived and worked). The words are those of Herr Dahms. The 1st is in #English. The 2nd in Dahms’ native #German.

“#DIEGO creates works of art which are full of expression and timeless beauty, which deeply impress and fascinate people with its exceptional appeal, and instill the desire to possess.

#DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people. They understand, they get excited about, and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art. The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immense that people gradually acquire more and more of his work. DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”

42. 1979 DIEGO Catalog Adolf Merkt, Taunusstein Page 11 of 16 Siegfred Dahms' quote

Highest price for #DIEGO at Galerie Dahms

We believe the highest known recorded price for a #DIEGO artwork in his lifetime was at #Galerie Dahms in Wiesbaden; a very large work for DM 14,000 in the late 70’s. Using only time value of money alone would place the value today of $30,000 or more.

#Fauvism is the style of les Fauves (#French for “the wild beasts” ), a short-lived and loose group of early twentieth-century #Modern artists whose works emphasized #bold and #strong, vivid #colors often in contrast to the area defined. Fauvism as a movement began around #1900 and continued beyond #1910.

A favorite of great #museums, fauve #painters included its leaders Henri #Matisse and Andre #Derain joined by Kees Van Dongen, Maurice de #Vlaminck, Alexej #Jawlensky and others.

Hot Buys! Diego Voci paintings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Beurone of Gerleve, 1965 31 1/2″ x 24″ 

HOT BUYS!!!

The time to buy a DiegoVoci™ painting is right now while there are more sellers than buyers. That will change.

Remember when houses were so cheap a few years ago? The people who took advantage got anywhere from 30% to double their money today. Buy low. Sell high.

The DiegoVoci™ owners of 30 and 40 years ago have passed or are dying. Owners literally hoarded 4,000 Diego oil paintings since Diego’s death in 1985. Yet DiegoVoci™ was unknown to the world’s art market. The paintings are showing up in yard sales, thrift shops, auctions, and eBay ranging from 97¢ to $1250. Some are quite good. One or two not as good. It’s all in the eye of the beholder. This canvas (painting above) is good. The new owner bought it at a garage sale for an amazing 97¢! You should be so lucky.

Two things are at work to raise DiegoVoci™ prices:
1. As people like you find the bargains, the supply will get tighter.
2. The demand will rise also because of the work being done by the volunteer Diego Voci Project Team to enhance awareness and value of Diego’s great body of artwork.

Get busy! Google “Diego Voci” while the buys are hot. The bottom is now. The sky’s the limit!

Go to www.diegovociproject.com to purchase a DiegoVoci™ painting.

1974 Diego 1 of 8-page Catalog (Cover)

Page 2 Content of 1974 Diego Catalog by Coop Cooprider, DiegoVoci™Historian begins with this quote by DiegoVoci™ interviewed by journalist Victoria Williams in Germany:

A man does not find interest to be artist… it
comes automatically.

You don’t ask yourself what day you have the idea…
it grows from yourself.

Page_2_8_pg_brochure_5 DIEGO PAINTING

#DiegoVoci™ painting “The Red Hand“, 1974, 100 x 80 cm, oil on canvas

Victoria Williams, free-lancing at the time, wrote the following biographical sketch:

“Antonio DiegoVoci™ was born August 10, 1920, in Gasperina, a little #village in south #Italy. Typical of most parents, Guiseppe Antonio and Messina Angela encouraged their son to study for a traditional #profession. His father said,  

‘The God of Art does not give bread Diego’

…but this was not important. The compulsion for #art was too strong – the pleasure too rewarding. DIEGO was born to paint. DIEGO sold his first painting at 18. Since then art has been his profession, his life; his complete livelihood.

“I paint for pleasure… I like to work.” – Diego

At 19, DIEGO began his studies the #ACADEMY #SANMARCO in #Florence where he was tutored during a 3 year period in the #arts of #painting and #sculpture.

DIEGO began traveling the world at 25, living the life of a true #Bohemian artist, painting for his room and food. DIEGO continued #studying, #painting and #meeting with other popular artists of the #century.”  

The real academy is the Café… where you meet so many artists.” – Diego Voci™
