LOST #DIEGO PAINTING…WHERE IS IT?

Helga #Voci, widow to Diego Voci, has a shoebox with old photos of paintings done by Diego but many do not have names of owners on them… so the whereabouts are unknown. 

This is one of the images of a Diego #cubistic painting that came from Helga’s shoebox… size and title are unknown:

Notice the rider appears to be strumming a base fiddle that forms into the rider’s left leg as he straddles his flying horse.  And if you look at the eye of the bull, he’s thinking “What the heck is going on here?”  This story-filled #painting leaves you with many interpretations.  Most important is to find its owner and its trail of history.

DIEGO VOCI’s FIRST SHOW IN USA #DIEGOVOCI HISTORICAL #PRICELISTS 1973 and 1994

In October 1973, Dr. Ogden (Ted) Brown had DIEGO as their guest, sponsoring a stellar one-man exhibition for him at the #Broadmoor Resort, #Boulder, #Colorado.

Marsha Largent, who then became Diego’s U.S. Representative, was the source of these 3 pricelists for Diego Voci #artworks:

2 1973 Pricelists in PAINT Post for Social Media 20 JAN 2015

The first (Top Left) appears to be the prices that Diego expected from the sale of each work – prepared by Helga Voci.

The second (Top Right) appears to be the retail asking price at the #Broadmoor show.

21 years later, the third (list) compiled in 1994 appears to be appraisals in Helga Voci’s hand, perhaps for determining insurance values.

DIEGO INSPIRES THE NEW GENERATION

Recollections of DIEGO VOCI by Susan Max, daughter of Stephen and Wendy Max follow below. Susan is the proud owner of “Jeune fille avec chapeau fleuri”Jeune fille avec Chapeau Fleuri 291-921 belongs to Susan Max

“As a young girl living in Germany I had the rare treat of going to meet a REAL artist. I was so excited! His name was Diego Voci and at first sight I recognized Diego’s charisma. My nervousness subsided as he drew us into his world with his exceptional interest in each of us. He was very interested in the fact that both my middle brother and I read and played instruments. Diego upon learning or our musical training removed a napkin and drew a treble clef on it asking us to explain what the clef symbol was and a sheet of music he had.

What struck me was that during this visit the house he lived in was a cornucopia for the imagination. He graciously took us through the living and working areas and I seem to recall an easel with unfinished work set up in the studio.

I remember DIEGO as a man that displayed so much interest in the world around him. I also remember him saying that you could paint with color, light and canvas. He had the ability to instantly draw you into his world and to include you into it. Much of my memories are that of an observer being let into a brilliant artists life.

I remember how he also mentioned that I reminded him of a young girl and how my face shape was so similar. I remember being transfixed at the beautiful colors and the huge easels with work yet to be finished.

On asking him when he painted, he responded then that he never knew when the urge would present itself and then as we were leaving Diego left and went into the studio where he started to paint.

I am so lucky to be influenced by such a brilliant and still current REAL artist.”

IMPORTANT #DIEGO MASTERPIECE IN CANADA

40 years ago Canadians Stephen and Wendy Max watched #DIEGO VOCI paint this masterful artwork titled “Suonatrice di Linto”, which is now part of their impressive DIEGO Art collection.

Suonatrice di linto 251-199

Stephen and Wendy Max are packing bags preparing for their annual “Snowbird” trip from Canada to Florida for a couple of months.

Stephen based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has launched a new website: www.diegovociproject.com; now in its test run, work-in-progress. All ideas are welcome.

Be sure to see the collection of the Diego Voci Estate, owner Helga Voci, Diego’s widow.

The passion and talent of a truly “addicted” DIEGO collector (owns 27) has been an amazing lift to the DIEGO VOCI PROJECT. When you search Google for “Diego Voci” you’ll see some of the videos created by Max, as a “New Generation” discovers internationally collected artist ANTONIO DIEGO VOCI (VOH-chee 1920-1985).

NOT ALL NUDES ARE BEAUTIFUL… OR ARE THEY?

Matisse and DIEGO in one IMAGE for Social Media Aug.2.2014

Henri #Matisse and #DiegoVoci were fascinated with the female body, as many master artists were. The #Odalisque in Red Pants Matisse nude, on left valued at $3 million had been stolen, FBI recovered. #Donna Seduta #nude on right was done by #Diego in 1971, oil on wood accented by strokes of Diego’s palette knife scarring the paint. Diego felt all female bodies are beautiful.   (See #Euronews video: http://www.euronews.com/2014/07/09/venezuela-recovers-stolen-matisse-painting/ )

Coop #Cooprider, Diego Historian, wrote in “The Beauty of Diego”*:

 “Every person has their own perception of beauty. In 1974 Diego described with
heavy Italian accent, the beauty he sees in the female:

“A man look at woman, this is cerebral feeling. When I like fat woman, I build Venus that way. I like skinny woman, I build Venus that way.”

Diego was smitten by the beauty of all females.”

BELIEVE IT OR NOT  . . . SOME CRITICS CHOSE THE #FAKE“MATISSE”

            ABOVE is NOT the real $3 million dollar Matisse!     THIS IS:

Odalisque a la culotte rouge - 1925

Odalisque a la culotte rouge, Henri Matisse 1925

The next question to consider is how does one price beauty when not a Matisse? One zero less than $3 million dollars? Two zero’s less? Three zeros? Good art is priceless.
