FRUSTRATED VAN GOGH COULDN’T SELL ANYTHING

#VanGogh artistic talent was among the all-time best.  But, it didn’t sell until many years after his #death; and now Van Gogh’s works bring in multi-millions worldwide.

Van Gogh

As noted in the Wikipedia biography (see below) of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-85), he was motivated not to live the cash-strapped lives of Van Gogh and Modigliani and lived the good life solely from the buyers of his art.

“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.”

Modigliani Christie's Auction November 9 2015 BBC image

Straight from the #NYTimes

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/10/arts/with-170-4-million-sale-at-auction-modigliani-work-joins-rarefied-nine-figure-club.html?_r=0

In an overheated art market where anything seems possible, a painting of an outstretched nude woman by the early-20th-century artist Amedeo Modigliani sold on Monday night for $170.4 million with fees to Liu Yiqian, a former taxi driver turned billionaire art collector, in a packed sales room at Christie’s. It was the second-highest price paid for an artwork at auction.

The painting became the 10th work of art to reach nine figures under the hammer. The bidding was palpably tense, with six people vying for the lot, and it took nine minutes to sell, with the winning bid coming from the phone. Mr. Liu, who with his wife Wang Wei is among China’s most visible art collectors, confirmed on Tuesday that he is the buyer. He said he planned to bring the work back to Shanghai, where he and his wife have two private museums.

Modigliani nudes are regarded as among the ultimate trophy paintings of the 20th century.

Persons attracted to Modigliani are also drawn to the magnetism of artist DIEGO VOCI™.  This small Diego is part of the DIEGO VOCI™ ESTATE.  Available:  Link to www.diegovociproject.com; click “Acquire Originals”.

About the $42 million Modigliani:

“There were plenty of big-ticket lots peppered throughout the evening, highlighted in large part by Amedeo Modigliani’s beautiful and almost prim seated portrait “Paulette Jourdain,” from circa 1919, which sold to an anonymous telephone bidder for the top lot price of $42,810,000 (est. upon request in excess of $25 million). The unidentified, silver-haired under bidder sat in the fourth row of the salesroom, wedged between two blonde companions and sipping white wine during the bidding. The pony-tailed sitter in the painting was the maid and later companion/lover of Leopold Zborowski, Modigliani’s Paris dealer. The work was last exhibited in “Modigliani and His Models” at the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 2006. It was one of Modigliani’s last portraits before his death in 1920 and #Taubman acquired the work from the Acquavella Galleries in 1983, the same year he acquired Sotheby’s with the help of several private investors, including Henry Ford II.”

#Diego’s LADY ON THE BEACH #1972

“Lady on the Beach” 1972

” Lady on the Beach, 1972 is impressive in its high-contrast composition and vibrant color as well as its content and size (23″ x 40″). This and other works from the early 1970s shows DIEGO stretching his artistic chops into the realm of #surrealism with fauvist-inspired color. We love this painting because of its uniqueness and the craft with which #DIEGO frames the Lady within the #surrealistic landscape. The composition is at once pure figurative DIEGO within a broader surrealistic and #fauvist backdrop.

DIEGO positions the Lady reclined with a vase, referential perhaps to the symbolism of Mary Magdalene . The typical DIEGO comparisons of Modigliani and Matisse are expanded in this piece with the thought and color of #André Derain and maybe Maurice de Vlaminck. It is certainly a different and extraordinary piece.” C.V. 2012

ANOTHER DIEGO #ARTWORK FOUND

BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR “DIEGO VOCI” PAINTINGS. THEY ARE TURNING UP EVERYWHERE. BE APART OF THE NEW GENERATION

Mike Stewart recently acquired this “DIEGO” painting at an estate sale. Mike had not heard of “Diego” before he had seen this painting. Mike was drawn to the eyes in the painting, he said they looked like “#Modigliani” eyes and thought the painting was “well done”.

Mike searched Google for any information on “Diego” and found an example of a clown / harlequin and connected what he found to Diego Voci. There upon found a plethora of information on Diego Voci on Google. He didn’t know what an important man Diego was until he started reading Diego Voci Wikipedia, the Diego Voci threads on Artifact Collectors and the Diego Voci website.

This is an example of the NEW GENERATION DIEGO COLLECTORS.

Diego1The painting with frame is 27″ x 20 ½”, tempera and pastel with the use of sand for added texture on paper board. The mat is new.

The painting is for sale for $675 “as is”. View original posting: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting- of-the-week-5154118/Page8.html#227
