DIEGO VOCI “ARTIST OF A THOUSAND FACES”

Der Monch #1151-397 oil on canvas 60x70cm

“Der Mönch”, by Antonio DIEGO Voci, 70 x 60 cm, Oil on Canvas, #1151-397

Larry Martel in #Heidelberg, Germany bought “Der Mönch” on Thanksgiving Day. The monks seems to be saying to the artist, “Who is the guy, Diego? Are you sure I can trust him?” Diego’s wife Helga captured this Diego memory on canvas with her polaroid camera in 1975, since faded.

NOT FOR SALE

Deux Filles au Bleu 50 x 60cm 1968

Diego Voci; “Deux Filles au Bleu” 50x60cm oil on canvas ca. 1968

This painting, was listed on The Diego Voci Project website as “Not for Sale”.

Stephen & Wendy Max (volunteers for the Diego Voci Project Team) were immediately attracted to this portrait of two young women-with dark blank eyes, sensuous lips without a smile -conveying a message of noble beauty. Eventually and gratefully we were able to convince Helga to part with her treasured painting.

When Stephen & Wendy Max finally received the painting we asked Helga why “Deux Filles au Bleu” meant so much to her, here is her response:

Dear Stephen and Wendy,
I am happy that you like the painting and I know that with you it is in good hands and that you really appreciate it. The story about it is that when we lived in Wiesbaden between 1965 and 1970 we went one time to Prague where we went several times because we both liked the City and we always went through little antique shops, they had many there and we found this beautiful frame and Diego said- I will paint you a beautiful painting for this frame and that was -Deux filles au bleu- and I loved it and carried it where ever we moved. …Helga Voci

THE #BRAIN #CHEMISTRY OF #ARTISTS

https://news.artnet.com/art-world/why-are-artists-poor-research-suggests-it-could-be-hardwired-1310147 

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci 1920-1985, speaks of her experience of her late husband. #Diego liked to be “Seen” and “Be Seen” at the finest of places… all money made from his art.
“I must say at that time I had met many artists who were quite poor, they were all seriously working, they mostly had small ateliers, no comfort, happy when they sold a painting, and then invited the others. And when they didn`t sell – just eating bread and black coffee. Nobody had a car, in fact DIEGO was called: “el pintor con coche” (which means- the painter with a car) . So, when I heard DIEGO inviting me in his car I thought: this man is showing off, besides the car he was very well dressed, like a businessman.”
