“Joueur de flute et femme nue” (1970) by Pablo Picasso
A Russian Oligarch bought 2 Billion dollars of artworks including Klimt, Picasso, Gauguin, Rothko, da Vinci and more. He is claiming in court he was overcharged! One of the art pieces he bought was just sold for over $400 million!
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”.
We are the Diego Voci Project, an all volunteer group assisting the Diego Voci Estate spreading the awareness of the great internationally collected artist Diego Voci and cataloging all of Diego Voci’s works of art in the Estate’s Archive.
Each artist captured pathways through nature on canvas. Van Gogh painted on the scene. Diego Voci painted by memory. Van Gogh had #Gauguin by his side. Diego had his wife Helga by his side. Van Gogh took 4 days. Diego took 2 days. Van Gogh’s “L’Allee des Alyscamps” is 92cm x 73.5cm, Diego Voci’s “Der Spaziergang” is 81cm x 61cm. Van Gogh “L’Allee des Alyscamps” just sold on May 6, 2015 for $66 million. What price should be for this Diego Voci?
