FOUND THE ORIGINAL “LA RENTREE DES PAYSANS” AT DA SANDRO

La Rentree des Paysans and Ristorante da Sandro

Out of 4000 thousand paintings created by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee), our mission is to locate one by one with the help of Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, who sent us, Diego Voci Project (www.diegovociproject.com), a shoebox filled with index cards of images & titles, a cataloging system for Diego’s works of art.

#DIEGO_VOCI & THE MARKETPLACE #1975

Marche de Fleurs and Market Day

Happy #LaborDay!       Go To The:   #Market #marché #Markt #mercato #mercado

Internationally collected #artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) enjoyed the atmosphere of the open market in the many villages he traveled, the variety of people, the conversations, and capturing the stories from their eyes and their #faces, that he would later remember on canvas. (As shown here on faded polaroids provided by Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, she made these frames.)

“MARCHÉ DE FLEURS” was purchased by Captain Kuehn in March 1975. “MARKET DAY” was purchased by Ronald Harrington in April 1975. Where are they and their Diego’s now?

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

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.

Diego Voci; “Temperamento” oil on canvas #961-551 50x40cm 

If you know of Michael Day, or are him, please contact the Diego Voci Project at diegovociproject@gmail.com.

As we continue the ongoing (volunteer) process of developing the history and legacy of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci we discovered that this small canvas “Temperamento” 50x40cm was a gift to Michael Day.

This unique surrealistic treasure centered around a face that carries its own mystery. Diego Voci, Artist of Thousand Faces shows up in all different styles. Surrealism happens to be a style where Diego pushed the boundaries.

We’d like to know more about the occasion for this generous gift.

#Diego – Der Künstler und sein #Model

Der Kunstler und sein Model 32x24 selfportrait #73814

Diego Voci; “Der Künstler Sein Model Post” 32″ x 24″ oil on canvas #73814

When you need money, I go paint some”, common words from Diego to Helga. Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, shares some moments of Diego.

“Diego did not get so much excited when he sold a painting, he knew he needed the money to pay the bills, but money did not really interest him, he wanted a good life, nice Restaurants, Holidays, good Hotels, pay his bills, the house, etc. but he never was interested to save money, he did not care, as long as I [Helga] had a comfortable life and Alessandra [daughter] had everything she needed, everything was fine.”

The truth is if Diego could look down and see today;

The only things left for his widow and daughter at his death in 1985 were “some paintings and debts”. Helga at 78 with a daughter with Crohn’s Disease, is still working as a framer of other peoples’ art to meet expenses…
…THEREFORE, Helga is now offering the one piece dear to her heart she said she would never sell; The self portrait of Diego.

In this rare self portrait of Diego (Der Künstler und Sein Model, oil on canvas 32″ x 24″), surrounded by his love for art and his inspirations is offered on the Diego Voci Project website for 6000 Euros. Here is the link and explore the inspirations and intimacies of Diego Voci. https://www.diegovociproject.com/_p/prd4/4674134593/product/der-kunstler-und-sein-model
