The “Entertainer” at the Easel

The clown genre by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-85) is among the world’s all-time best.

A wannabe jester himself, Diego loves to clown around, as you see in these two images followed by “The Clown” for which there is a $30,000 Reward offered.

Helga Voci who was beside Diego from 1960 to 1985 says “Diego liked to be entertaining and do funny things, stupid things”.

Maybe that’s why Diego was so fascinated with clowns, of which he painted many from memory.

TOMORROW A NEW #CONGRESS PRESIDES

There is a big elephant in the room that is afraid of the power of the President’s “Veto Pen”.   Look closely, you can barely see the powerful weapon on the desk.

Did one third of the people who voted put the elephant in the room?  Or was it the two thirds of the people who did NOT vote?

NOT VOTING IS NO LAUGHING MATTER

In a previous #DiegoVoci post we learned that a “Pierrot” is a cousin to the Clown, Harlequin, and Jester, all of which some people who did NOT vote feel run our #Congress. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page8.html#239

This is a message to the two-thirds of Americans who did NOT vote:

You complain that Congress has a bunch of clowns and crooks’.  Look in the mirror. If you are among the two-thirds that did not vote, you are responsible.

Your vote is serious business.

Save our freedoms.  One of them is Freedom of Speech that allows artists to make fun of our elected representatives, as did these artists.  Protect our tax dollars. Your vote, combined with others can clean house.

NOTE: Not much really has changed since 9 months ago when the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and Speaker of the Senate Mitch McConnell were portrayed taking their medicine from the President. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page14.html#413

FOOTNOTE: Portrayal of real #clowns was serious business for internationally collected artist Diego Voci (VOH-chee).  There is a $30,000 reward for “The Clown” stolen ca. 1980 in Germany. Link: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page8.html#231
