PAUL GAUGUIN: WHICH PAINTING?

Gauguin and Diego landscapes

If you thought it was the bottom one you would not be alone.  The top painting that sold on February 28, 2017 for $25 million dollars at Christie’s in London is not the typical bold style Gauguin is known for (Google “Gauguin images“).

The lower painting is by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) from the private collection of Patti and Coop Cooprider.  Google has selected a few dozen of Diego Voci art works for display in their gallery of Diego Voci Images.  Google “Diego Voci” and click “Images”.

You can read a bit more on Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#First_marriage

George Roberts, shares his story about how he acquired this Diego work of art:

“We have a “nude” painting by Diego that was purchased at the Patch Barracks Officers Club in Germany in the late 1960’s from an American female who told us that this was a painting of Diego’s first wife. We paid $250.00 for the painting which was a lot of money in those days. We did not meet Diego. The painting is oil on canvas and measures approx.31” x 21” in the original frame. There is no title on the back of the canvas however a number 1697-9.” (The number on the back of the canvas represents the timing of the painting was complete)

See here images of Josiane (taken in the 1960’s) to compare with the Diego painting owned by George Roberts.

#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.

Cubism - Christiane Hauk Genre Version

Cubism“, Signed “DIEGO” top Left hand corner, Private Collection (DIEGO was very generous giving away his art to people he was close to, for example this gift of a cubistic painting to Helga Voci’s sister.)

C71 NUDE cubism 1971 31 .5  x 23.75

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