Although the deadline closed today for submission of Diego’s works to be considered in the 3rd book “Diego Voci: Artist of A Thousand Faces“.
We will be posting more of the many images received over the next weeks. Book publishing date will be the 100th birthday (August 20th) of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).
We hope you are all managing with your own personal situations. On our end, our team has made some adjustments – as just about everything has changed in our communities in the last 2 or 3 weeks. Many of us have been restricted from our regular day-day routine. …Stephen Max
Diego Voci; “Gente Al Mare” #251-207 oil on canvas 70x50cm
The #village #women seeing their men off on a fishing excursion, leaves them alone for sometimes weeks until their return. And sometimes a terrible #storm can take the men and the #boat with it.
Diego Voci wanted to get close to really know the #fisherman, what stories their #faces told. You could often find Diego at the #village gathering place overlooking the #ocean, #playingcards with the #fisherman.
Happy #LaborDay! Go To The: #Market #marché #Markt #mercato #mercado
Internationally collected #artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) enjoyed the atmosphere of the open market in the many villages he traveled, the variety of people, the conversations, and capturing the stories from their eyes and their #faces, that he would later remember on canvas. (As shown here on faded polaroids provided by Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, she made these frames.)
“MARCHÉ DE FLEURS” was purchased by Captain Kuehn in March 1975. “MARKET DAY” was purchased by Ronald Harrington in April 1975. Where are they and their Diego’s now?
