WHITNEY’S #WARHOL SHOW #SPOTLIGHT HIS #HUMAN SIDE

71.226

Andy Warhol, Before and After [4] (1962). Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; purchase with funds from Charles Simon, 71.226 © The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. / Artists Rights Society (ARS) New York

The Whitney’s Warhol Show Strives to Spotlight His Human Side. But It’s His Cynicism That Remains Most Surprising

The show presents a very un-Warholian Warhol—and that may be wishful thinking.

Landscape

Diego Voci:  Landscape, oil on #canvas

As the internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) #traveled the world he constantly took photos in his mind to replicate on canvas at some later date.  This little gem #painting of a #landscape is an orphan without title year, or size…

… owner unknown.  Anyone???

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.

#Diego – Der Künstler und sein #Model

Der Kunstler und sein Model 32x24 selfportrait #73814

Diego Voci; “Der Künstler 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 Künstler 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
