“Alexander Calder was a virtuoso of do-it-yourself decor and gadgetry. The extent of his ingenuity is currently being revealed in an exhibition at Hauser & Wirth‘s rural Somerset outpost, where a show tells the story of how the American sculptor and his wife transformed a rundown farm in Roxbury, Connecticut, into a whirring hub of creativity.”

A TWO-FOLD MYSTERY PAINTING FROM THE MASTER OF SURREAL!

Diego Voci Painting

Diego Voci; Unknown Title; oil on canvas, signed “Diego”

We know nothing about this painting by the internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985). Not its size. Not is age. Not its whereabouts. All we have is a scanned image from a single sheet of glossy professional print paper. Logically it was for a printing project.

We reached out to Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, and she does not recall the specifics of this particular Diego Voci painting.

The two-fold mystery is the missing painting and the mystery within the painting itself.

The juxtaposition of “objects, shapes and figures” creates imagery that holds several stories within. Significance of the “Dove” in Diego’s works, what did this represent? “The spirit of child” often was a focal point for Diego; just as Alessandra, Diego’s daughter was the center of his love.
