GIFT FROM #DIEGO, MASTER OF #SURREALISM

Temperamento #961-551 50x40cm Michael Day 1977

Diego Voci; “Temperamento” oil on canvas #961-551 50x40cm 

If you know of Michael Day, or are him, please contact the Diego Voci Project at diegovociproject@gmail.com.

As we continue the ongoing (volunteer) process of developing the history and legacy of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci we discovered that this small canvas “Temperamento” 50x40cm was a gift to Michael Day.

This unique surrealistic treasure centered around a face that carries its own mystery. Diego Voci, Artist of Thousand Faces shows up in all different styles. Surrealism happens to be a style where Diego pushed the boundaries.

We’d like to know more about the occasion for this generous gift.

Rare #Diego Self Portrait Available!

Der Kunstler und sein Model 32x24 selfportrait #73814

Diego Voci; “Der Kunstler Sein Model Post” 32″ x 24″ oil on canvas #73814

When you need money, I go paint some”, common words from Diego to Helga. Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, shares some moments of Diego.

“Diego did not get so much excited when he sold a painting, he knew he needed the money to pay the bills, but money did not really interest him, he wanted a good life, nice Restaurants, Holidays, good Hotels, pay his bills, the house, etc. but he never was interested to save money, he did not care, as long as I [Helga] had a comfortable life and Alessandra [daughter] had everything she needed, everything was fine.”

The truth is if Diego could look down and see today;

The only things left for his widow and daughter at his death in 1985 were “some paintings and debts”. Helga at 78 with a daughter with Crohn’s Disease, is still working as a framer of other peoples’ art to meet expenses…
…THEREFORE, Helga is now offering the one piece dear to her heart she said she would never sell; The self portrait of Diego.

In this rare self portrait of Diego (Der Kunstler und Sein Model, oil on canvas 32″ x 24″), surrounded by his love for art and his inspirations is offered on the Diego Voci Project website for 6000 Euros. Here is the link and explore the inspirations and intimacies of Diego Voci. https://www.diegovociproject.com/_p/prd4/4674134593/product/der-kunstler-und-sein-model

Captain Lambert purchased this painting in April of 1980 at Lahr, Canadian AFB in Germany.

We have no information on whether Captain Lambert still owns this painting or the whereabouts.

Diego, love of food as an Italian, seems to capture people with their emotions and a relation to food.

Update:

Diego Voci AHAH! Kami Cooprider here! I came in this afternoon and saw this great post. It looked familiar. Voila! Carole Hackenbeck and her hubby Claude own it. Here is what she wrote to us late last year: “Hi, my husband is number 8 of a 10 children family. Number 7, his brother Michel was a major in the Canadian air-force and was stationed in Germany for a few years and he bought this painting! Unfortunately he died of a massive heart attack in September 1988 at the age of 39!! Our third son was born on September 30th 1988 which is the date of Diego Voci’s passing [Actual date of Death is August 10, 1985]!! His parents cherished this painting and when both were diseased the 9 siblings had a drawing to share the objects that everyone wanted and my husband won the painting which we love and reminds us of his closest brother!!!” and here is the Index card with Helga Voci handwritten info on Major Michel Lambert, Claude’s brother. Our Diego Voci Project Team will continue posting more of the the ‘lost’ paintings! Greetings from the DVP, Coop, Stephen Max and Lisa Camargo
