WHERE IS THE MERMAID?

#DIEGO VOCI: MASTER OF #SURREALISM

Diego Voci; Le Sirene #14925 60x80cm ca. 1974

Le Sirene” (English translation means “The Mermaid”) painted in 1974 by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) was sold to Captain Brown of Ramstein, Germany. 

Could that be any relation to Dr. Odgen Brown who represented Diego in USA starting 1973 and gave his first big exhibition at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado?  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#Exhibitions_in_the_US

HUMOR CAPTURED FROM 1973

Marsha Largent Piper (daughter of Dr. Ogden Brown, collector of Diego Voci and once USA agent for Diego Voci) just sent the Diego Voci Project an image of herself with Diego during the 1973 Diego Voci Exhibition at the Broadmoor in Boulder, Colorado.  Marsha recalls laughing often with Diego.   

In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He experimented with Glass paint right in the Brown’s kitchen.  Diego cooked and painted with glass paint. Yes Diego had to “cook” the glass paint.

From Marsha’s collection here is a wild example by Diego:

$20,000 REWARD yes $20,000 REWARD for this stolen masterwork by internationally collected artist Antonio DIEGO VOCI (VOH-chee) 1920-1985!

From the voice of Marsha Piper, one of the daughters to the Brown Family;
“My dad, Dr. Ogden (Ted) Brown and mom, Alyce (both deceased), at one point in the seventies had the largest collection of DIEGO Voci artworks. This photo below with DIEGO was taken with them in front of our Colorado Springs home in 1973. DIEGO was our guest as we sponsored a stellar one-man exhibition for him at the Broadmoor Resort. While as guest, DIEGO designed and sewed a fully lined brocade dress for me and my sister Lynda. DIEGO was constantly drawing, and he cooked for our family, selecting and purchasing every little ingredient. A memorable experience.”

The Brown family has dispersed the entire Diego Voci collection with their entire family; staying true to the legacy of Diego Voci.

GLASS PAINT = THE ART OF COOKING AT HIGH HEAT!

Le Vinage #10802-109 Maj. Pizzo Spangdahlem 1980

Diego Voci; “Le Visage” 40x30cm #10802-109 Glass Paint

Glass paint is a very difficult medium that for several months challenged Diego. In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He cooked and painted with glass paint in front of Brown’s daughters Lynda and Marsha. Yes, Diego had to cook the glass paint. Here is one example called “Le Visage = The Face”, rich in color & full of expression, just like Diego himself, always challenging himself and pushing to paint outside the box.

$20,000 REWARD for this stolen masterwork by internationally collected artist Antonio DIEGO VOCI (VOH-chee) 1920-1985!

 

In 1973 Dr. Ogden Brown, an addicted Diego Voci collector, obtained the phenomenal “NUDE IN YELLOW” 48″ x 36″ directly from Diego Voci.  About 1974, this marvelous painting strangely disappeared in a move of the Brown family from one home to another in Colorado. They saw “NUDE IN YELLOW” go into the moving truck. The painting was missing when the truck was unloaded and hasn’t been seen since.

Il Spazzocamino = Chimney Sweeper

In 1973, The Brown Family curated the first USA exhibition for DIEGO VOCI at Boulder Colorado’s exclusive Broadmoor Resort. The Invitation:

The Brown Family retained this painting “Il Spazzocamino” for their family collection of Diegos.

The significance of a chimney sweep” brings good luck in Germany.  When the chimney was stopped up, the man in black had to be called in to clear the flue so you could finally cook your food again. A clean sweep also reduced the risk of setting the house on fire. So to this day we consider it good luck to see a chimney sweep.”

#Sinner or #Fisherman !!

A #surrealist example by DiegoVoci™ from the Brown #Family Collection in #Colorado, titled, “La dance des pecheurs”.

La Danse des Pecheurs, oil on canvas, 32″ x 23″ signed “Diego”

The word “pecheurs” has several meanings. “Pécheur” means “Sinner” and  “Pêcheur” can mean “Fisherman”.  “Danse des Pêcheurs” means “Fisherman Dance”.

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.
