#PORTRAITS? “THAT IS NOT #ART,” Diego Voci, 1974

Image

Diego felt his creativity was confined in portraits. #DiegoVoci deeply resisted the restriction. What about caricatures? Diego said,“They are fun. I can be creative.”

John, age 9 and Mitch, age 5 1/2 (1976) by #Diego

In 1976 Frank Freeman somehow convinced Diego to do portraits of his two sons John and Mitch. Frank and his wife had met – and seen Diego several times while living  in #Wiesbaden, Germany. They had even bought a “Landscape” from Diego in Schwetzingen (#Heidelberg area in 1974). See the Freeman’s and other #landscapes on our Pinterest “Landscape” board: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/landscape-gallery/

One day Frank visited “Galerie #Dahms” in Wiesbaden’s fancy Wilhelmsstrasse shopping district and saw a portrait of a young girl. Frank named her “Principessa” as it was unknown who she really was. Diego had  used “pastel and felt-tip on posterboard” to capture the young girl. “It was a commission, that was refused by the ‘buyer’ stating ‘It doesn’t look like my daughter’!”

Having not forgotten the exquisite portrait, for Frank it was “the inspiration for asking Diego to do my boys – over his protestations!” Just months before Frank and his family were due to return to the United States he commissioned Diego do portraits of his sons, John and Mitch, then 9 and 5 ½.

John, age 9 and Mitch, age 5 1/2 (1976) by #Diego

On a Sunday afternoon in mid-July 1976, I took the boys to his Wiesbaden home (Taunusstein), where Diego spent about 15-20 minutes capturing each boy’s likeness.” Frank recalls, “when I got home, I began to see the “Principessa’s” father’s viewpoint . . . the portraits weren’t really as the boys looked.” But “3 years later, comparing the boys to their portraits, they were EXACT likenesses!!! Diego had envisioned the boys as they would look a few years later. THEY matched what he had drawn!! Prescient!!”

A few days before leaving Germany Frank recalls to his surprise, “I got a call from Siegfried DAHMS, owner of the gallery, who informed me that DIEGO had instructed that I be given the portrait of “Principessa” in appreciation for our patronage.” Frank owns it.

“Principessa” Unknown Subject, “Who am I?” Diego drew me in 1974.

To this day, it is a mystery as to who the young girl may be. Frank hopes that someone out there may see this post! Do you know who she is?

Another rare portrait done in charcoal and pastels by #Diego of Mike Kennedy’s mother in the early 60’s can be seen: https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/mothers-portrait-by-diego-and-new-generation/

#GALERIE DAHMS (#WIESBADEN, #GERMANY)

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, found two (not very clear) images she took of the Galerie Dahms, about 1983, each with a DIEGO painting in the window.

Look closely and you can see the reflection of Helga in the glass standing outside shooting the photo. It indicates not only how big the DIEGO painting is to the left of Helga but also how high the Galerie ceiling is.

The Galerie was located on the classy #Wilhelmstrasse of Wiesbaden. The DIEGO / Dahms relationship based on a handshake, lasted nearly 2 decades.

DIEGO VOCI’s LAST HOURS

All of the fierce pain from cancer metastasizing and sapping what was left of his strength, #DIEGO could not stop drawing. Drawing was as important to Diego as breathing.

Diego drew every waking minute”, said Tony Voci, nephew, of his 1957 trip in #Europe with his art compelled uncle Diego.

So weak he could barely hold the pencil in his last hours, this is his final artistic expression. A small sketch that Helga Voci treasures as much as her husband’s best #masterpieces.

DIEGO VOCI EMPATHIZES WITH POOR PEOPLE

Human beings are drawn to emotions in a form of expression that Diego did so well in his portrayal of people on canvas.  Diego empathized with people of lesser means and told their stories with his brushes.  No holding back, Diego captured the raw human face in his works to share the beauty of all walks of life.

The Silvers Family of Colorado shares their “Girl with Pitcher” with the Diego Voci Team, a painting completed during the Joy (Gibson) Naffouj time period.  Joy Naffouj in conversation with Diego one day said “Everyone knows you as Diego… you need to be signing your paintings Diego”.  That was the beginning of the Diego Voci Legacy (1965).

LOST #DIEGO PAINTING…WHERE IS IT?

Helga #Voci, widow to Diego Voci, has a shoebox with old photos of paintings done by Diego but many do not have names of owners on them… so the whereabouts are unknown. 

This is one of the images of a Diego #cubistic painting that came from Helga’s shoebox… size and title are unknown:

46 Lost Shoebox Revised S.Max 17 MAR 2015

Notice the rider appears to be strumming a base fiddle that forms into the rider’s left leg as he straddles his flying horse.  And if you look at the eye of the bull, he’s thinking “What the heck is going on here?”  This story-filled #painting leaves you with many interpretations.  Most important is to find its owner and its trail of history.

HELP FIND THIS LOST DIEGO PAINTING!

DIEGO VOCI’s FIRST SHOW IN USA #DIEGOVOCI HISTORICAL #PRICELISTS 1973 and 1994

In October 1973, Dr. Ogden (Ted) Brown had DIEGO as their guest, sponsoring a stellar one-man exhibition for him at the #Broadmoor Resort, #Boulder, #Colorado.

Marsha Largent, who then became Diego’s U.S. Representative, was the source of these 3 pricelists for Diego Voci #artworks:

2 1973 Pricelists in PAINT Post for Social Media 20 JAN 2015

The first (Top Left) appears to be the prices that Diego expected from the sale of each work – prepared by Helga Voci.

The second (Top Right) appears to be the retail asking price at the #Broadmoor show.

21 years later, the third (list) compiled in 1994 appears to be appraisals in Helga Voci’s hand, perhaps for determining insurance values.

#MovieBigEyes

M Keane for DIEGO Comparison Social Media 27 DEC 2014

A craze that moved the world.

New York Times said it wasn’t art.

The public thought better. Indirectly Margaret #Keane had an influence on #Diego.

Demand by the public for Diego to please paint something similar to Keane’s girls with #BigEyes at first fell on deaf ears.

For a long time Diego resisted. He prided himself in his refusal to ever copy.

Finally, Diego would not admit it; but, he did a few paintings of young girls without sacrificing his own style.

The Diego #Collectors loved them. Here is one owned by Paul Mehler.
