“For Leonardo, a painter’s most ambitious goal was to convey a composition with convincing emotion,” said exhibition curator Carmen Bambach. “Few paintings in the history of Western art can elicit such a powerful psychological reaction.” – #ARTNEWS: https://news.artnet.com/exhibitions/leonardo-st-jerome-metropolitan-museum-1594957

Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) VOH-chee inspired by Leonardo da Vinci to capture powerful emotions in his works of art; see below as an example.

DIEGO & HORSES! He loved the majestic presence, the powerful muscles showing their strength, and the images he’d seen be Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. Diego felt the power.

Each work created here by DIEGO VOCI shows how Versatility was Diego’s strength. Driven to experiment in every genre while remaining distinctly Diego.

Hidden portrait found under #MonaLisa


Secrets Behind The Original Painting

Leonardo #daVinci, #VanGogh, #Rembrandt, #Goya and #DiegoVoci™ all share a common thread in that their paintings have revealed other paintings underneath the original painting.

The found hidden portrait underneath the #MonaLisa was discovered by Pascal Cotte who has spent more than 10 years using the technology to analyse the painting.  He claims the earlier portrait lies hidden underneath the surface of Leonardo’s most celebrated artwork.


#MonaLisa (Da Vinci) and #LaViolenza (DiegoVoci™) share that another common thread that each of these works of art are the most celebrated for each of the artists.
