#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.

C71 NUDE cubism 1971 31 .5  x 23.75

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

#PICASSO MEETS #ELGRECO?

In 1981, St. Albert residents, Stephen and Wendy Max presented the first Canadian showing of the work of Antonio Diego Voci.  The press paid attention:

“His (DiegoVoci™) paintings have overtones of Picasso cubist style, in harmony with an esthetic clarity suggestive of #ElGreco.” Section of article “St. Albert residents host art show”

The success of “#PICASSO MEETS #ELGRECO” stemmed into the launch of Goldcrest Galleries Ltd by Stephen Max as he became Canada’s exclusive agent for DiegoVoci™ until his death in 1985.

At one time they were believed to have the largest collection of DIEGO artworks in the United States. Some of those works were passed on the Brown Family children.

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:

46 Lost Shoebox Revised S.Max 17 MAR 2015

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.
