4 DIEGO VOCI TREASURES FOUND AT ESTATE SALE – NUMBER 1

When was the last time you went to a 2nd hand store, antique store, or even an Estate Auction? Tom in South Dakota went to an Estate Auction and found not just one oil painting by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) but a total of 4 oil paintings by the internationally collected artist, mostly known as “DIEGO” to all who have been lucky enough to meet him during his short lifetime. Meet the 1st of the 4: “FISCHER”FISCHER for POST w Title et al 6 APR 2018When Tom first saw “Fischer” come up for auction – he was taken by the rugged and well-lived look!  Diego was raised in Gasperina a small town in the southern region of Calabria, Italy. Diego loved people and proved this having lived his life loving people of all kind, ages, professions – as long as there was a passion of some kind. And,  Diego rarely used models, he created his subjects, places, things, all of it – from memory. Above, the brushstrokes show the wear and tear of life as a fisherman. But the glow in his eyes is alive.  Shown here are two more demonstrating DIEGO’s ability to capture the feeling of life experience:

Diego and Helga, his widow, spent much time traveling to destinations where Diego could enjoy the sun, the laid back leisurely life, and of course the water.  When little Alessandra came into their life, she too would be whisked away to the shores of wherever the auto at the time would take them, while Diego would take it all in, sketching, drawing. The artist would then turn these memories into surrealism, figurative or realism, to cubism or produce a fantasy visual.

Versatility was Diego’s strength. Driven to experiment in every genre while remaining distinctly Diego“, Coop Cooprider – Diego Voci Historian since 1973

#Shown here is Diego’s #surrealistic recollection of the moment that changed his life.

My life took on new meaning. I became more.” Diego to Helga

Diego Voci “Café de Paris“, 1241-181, 80x70cm Mr. Wilson purchased 2 April 1975 for $710

Who could predict that fate would place 19 year old Helga #Drössler, sitting in the Paris #artist #café Les Deux Magotswith a friend,  only to find the famous #sculptor Gigi #Guadagnucci who was also an acquaintance of her’s,  suddenly introduce her to the debonair artist #DiegoVoci ? Both their lives would change until Diego’s death in 1985.

#DIEGO #FACES SERIES – PART FOUR

Once again we want you to see Antonio DIEGO Voci’s versatility in our part four of the #Faces series. Note the drama of the #Pierrot to the calmness of the #Mother and Child. Note also the sense of young versus old.  Best is how Diego could render the surreal with tenderness and beauty in  “Mädchen mit #Mandoline” owned by Barbara W.
