#DIEGO VOCI FINAL ONE-MAN SHOW, DIED 43 DAYS LATER

 

It is well known in art history that Amadeo #Modigliani in his lifetime (1884-1920) had only one gallery solo exhibition, which was shut down by the police the first day. According to one source, #Modigliani painted 354 oil paintings before he early death.  He died poor.  The last sale of a #Modigliani this month (May 2018) sold for $157 million. 

 

#VanGogh painted, by one estimate, 900 oil paintings and never had a gallery solo exhibition and sold only one painting in his self-chosen-short-lifetime (1853-1890).  He died poor. The last #VanGogh sold for $81 million at Christie’s in November 2017.  In 1990, a #VanGogh went for $130 million.

 

Internationally collected artist Antonio #Diego Voci was born the year #Modigliani died  (1920-1985), #Diego Voci had several one-man exhibitions, painted about 4,000 oil paintings in his lifetime and sold most of them to collectors from all over the world.  “The Diego Voci Project” has been searching since 2009 to find them and catalog them for historical purposes.  Link: https://www.diegovociproject.com/

 

Here is the newspaper write-up in Germany about #Diego’s final exhibition.  He died of lung cancer 43 days later on August 10, 1985.

“THE *DIEGO #POTATO #CHIP #PHENOMONEN”

Can you eat only one potato chip and stop?

Likely no. Many people similarly became addicted to a magnetic appeal of art by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Many such collectors who had a dozen or more Diego’s have passed on, and the Diego art works have been scattered.

When Diego passed away back in 1985, Helga (Diego’s widow) had no idea that Diego’s life would create such a legacy to so many. Thanks to the internet, social media, and communication tools, Diego Voci collectors are being discovered every day.

Be a part of Diego Voci’s legacy, assist us (all volunteer) Diego Voci Project Team with locating Diego Voci’s works of art for the Diego Voci Estate Archive. They have been found as far a way as Brussels, Nicaragua, Philippines and Canada. Please email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com how you purchased your first painting, what prompted the second purchase, maybe the third.

Be a part of the Diego Voci Community.

This is only the 4th “VOCI” discovered so far from the era of Diego’s connection to the Schlossgalerie (who served a wealthy horse owner clientele) in Zurich advertised as “Antonio Voci”, 1962-1965. It is the first that DVP could acquire for the day a generous benefactor is willing to finance a major Diego Museum Exhibition.

In his early career internationally collected artist Antonio Innocenzo Voci (1920-1985) signed his works some form of VOCI (VOH-chee).  He was known his nickname by “Diego”. About 1966 he began using the “Diego” signature through 1985.

Here are the 3 other examples of “VOCI” paintings:

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

How many facets to a diamond?

Often it was said “Diego” has too many styles.  Collectors of the works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) own and treasure works in several “facets” ranging from realism, cubism, fauve, impressionism, and yes surrealism, and in which Diego excelled.

Diego was always experimenting.  https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/

The Diego Voci Estate has just discovered lost images of about a dozen wonderful surrealistic examples of Diego’s exceptional talent which we will share with you over the next few weeks.  If you know an owner, contact us at diegovociproject@gmail.com.
