THE #JOURNEY OF "L'ARLEQUIN TRISTE" BY #DIEGO UNFOLDED

Diego Voci; “L’Arlequin Triste” oil on canvas #5812-174

This painting L’Arlequin Triste by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) was wrapped in packaging for 40 years (owned by the original owner of Talbert’s Kleine Galeria in Tacoma, WA.).

Days ago… this painting L’Arlequin Triste arrived to its new owner, packing material removed and looks as if DIEGO had just finished painting this piece.

From the archives of Helga Voci, she shares her words her travels with Diego during the 1980’s to the United States. “On that trip in 1980 we went to N.Y. and Philadelphia where Diego has family still today. We also went to Tacoma, Washington, where Diego had an exhibit in a gallery called – Talbert`s Kleine Galerie in Gig Harbor, WA. Then on to San Francisco, New Orleans, Albuquerque. And again we drove to Colorado Springs. Along the way, we visited with many American friends we had met in Germany. At several places, we had private shows. We both liked the United States very much.” https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page2.html#44298

#BTS “DONNA CON BAMBINO” BY DIEGO VOCI (1920-1985)

From the collectors of this Diego Voci work of art, Don and Becky Fry share their history with Diego and Helga Voci;

“We have very fond memories of meeting Diego and Helga. Our first, “Donna con Bambino” was purchased at the Patch Barracks Offier Club during a baazar which we always frequented. In the 1970’s there wasn’t much to do for a young family. We were in our mid 20s. We did meet Diego and Helga. After his (Diego’s) death we traveled to his home and met with Helga. We also met Christine Khan (one of Diego’s Representatives and a dear friend to Helga) several times. We returned to Germany in 1984 and immediately wanted to purchase Diego’s work. We took a family trip from Kitzingen to Wiesbaden AB purchased a couple of Diegos. After 1985 we purchased a couple others. I acquired the Poster from the Education Center at Larson Barracks where I was stationed.”

From the Diego Voci Project, we thank, Don and Becky Fry for sharing their memories of Diego Voci. Their words only highlight what most Diego Voci collectors share in common is the the potato chip phenomenon (once you buy one Diego you end up purchasing more).

“For Leonardo, a painter’s most ambitious goal was to convey a composition with convincing emotion,” said exhibition curator Carmen Bambach. “Few paintings in the history of Western art can elicit such a powerful psychological reaction.” – #ARTNEWS: https://news.artnet.com/exhibitions/leonardo-st-jerome-metropolitan-museum-1594957

Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) VOH-chee inspired by Leonardo da Vinci to capture powerful emotions in his works of art; see below as an example.

What is the object or part of the background that is black and white? Is it a pattern or a ghostly mask?
