#DIEGO…#FRONTDOORS…#BAVARIA!

Close up of Berlin door

Diego Sculpture Door 1970 EXTRA

In the 1970, the parents of Helga Voci (Diego’s wife), built a new house in Bavaria. Diego’s artistic involvement can be seen in the interior and exterior to this day.

Here is an image of the front door (along with a close up) designed and sculpted in copper by Diego. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#Germany_-_Naffouj_and_Dahms_galleries

The inspiration of the design was of the Roman time period. Notice the Roman numbers across the middle of the door.

#MOVIE ON #CEZANNE, NOT A NICE MAN

Currently on the #art movie circuit is a negative view seldom noted of #Cezanne’s contankerous personality:   http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2205988377?playlistId=tt5078354&ref_=tt_ov_vi

#Antonio #Diego #Voci (1920-85) never copied, but in his canvases especially in the still life genre, an educated art connoisseur can see Cezanne’s influence in Diego’s work.

Nature Morte 161-427 May 6 1978

Diego Voci: Nature Morte #161-427 60 x 80 cm

The frame was made by Helga Voci who lived with Diego for the last 25 years of his life.

#MODIGLIANI, EXHIBITION IN PARIS BRINGS TOGETHER WORLD’S GREATEST ARTISTS

Modigliani Red Hair Woman

Modigliani was one of the modern master painters who inspired Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) “Artist of a Thousand Faces”.

Here is a work by Diego Voci from the collection of Jacqueline Risch of Germany that gives hints of the Modigliani influence while remaining distinctly Diego.

Träumerei 661-512 Oil on Canvas 50x40 cm 20x16 in.

To see more Google “Diego Voci” then click “Images”.

Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia biography states:

Diego thrived on camaraderie as did other artists before him, such as Amedeo Modigliani, both “figurative” artists, both Italian born, both migrated to Paris.  Among Diego’s many facets was a drive never to be poor, never to live a tormented drug ridden life of Amedeo Modigliani who at age 35 “died in Paris exacerbated by poverty only one exhibition to his credit.” or the tortured life of Vincent van Gogh who died at age 37, with only one painting purchased in his lifetime. Diego greatly admired the exceptional work of both artists, but, unlike both artists who found few buyers for their work, in their lifetime, Diego did for his.

PAUL GAUGUIN: WHICH PAINTING?

Gauguin and Diego landscapes

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”.

ONE #DIEGOVOCI PAINTING HOLDS SO MANY MEMORIES

petite-village-de-montague_a

Tony and Stacie Westbrook share their #heartfelt #story of their Diego Voci painting title “Petit Village de Montague” and how this #painting holds many years of memories for them.

In Tony’s words:

My wife and I purchased this piece while living in Germany and serving with the US military around 1982.  We seem to recall that we purchased it at an art show probably held at the Officers Club in either Stuttgart or Heidelberg.  We were living in Heilbronn at the time.  Over the years we have collected many pieces of art – originals and limited prints – yet this piece (Petit Village de Montague) remains our absolute favorite.  It is a constant reminder of our time in Europe and what we took on as a very young married couple.  I am happy to say that after 37 years we are still very happily married and that this piece always gets the most prominent spot in the house.  It has been all over the United States and has been enjoyed by countless numbers of our friends.  Its simplicity, warmth, and mixture of color/contrast make it a wonderful piece to gaze at and enjoy for a lifetime.  This painting is one of my most prized processions and I will never part with it.

“Petit Village de Montague” as painted by Diego, represented all that we loved about out time in Europe while allowing our imagination to constantly explore who lived in village, where the village was, what the families experienced, endured, and enjoyed about their town.  The painting just brought forth positive feelings and thoughts which is what drew us to it.

This is one example of stories we receive from collectors of Diego Voci’s work of art.  The Diego Voci Estate dreams of one day to find a generous benefactor to sponsor a major museum exhibition… in the meantime take a tour of Diego’s virtual museum: https://youtu.be/GG5Jl-2FuXM
