What One Mysterious, Easily Overlooked German Painting Taught Me About How to Visit a Museum in the Age of Blockbusters A Marauder stands for the best-case fate for the typical piece of art in a museum—which then also makes it stand for the typical condition of “Art” when you strip away the myth of its transparent timelessness. That fate is not to vanish. It endures. But it’s also not to inspire lasting ecstasies of interpretation or to summon crowds. Instead, it is to be present but not present, lurking in the shadows, waiting for the moment when it might actually be seen and known.
Below; a work by internationally collected artist Diego Voci with similar expression and depth in its interpretation. To see more visit: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/old-men-and-more-diegovocitm/

Cindy and Norm Ferland share with the Diego Voci Project Team two of their three works by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee) 1920-1985.
“We talked about where he (Diego) gets his ideas for paintings. He (Diego) told me that he sees a person and maybe weeks or a month later he will paint that person in his interpretation. Also we talked about the still life he painted because I had one of those and he (Diego) said he had seen a pot of flowers and he just thought he would try to paint it.” – Norm Ferland
Diego Voci, Artist of a Thousand Faces:
An extraordinary video created by Stephen Max (volunteer for The Diego Voci Project). Go behind the scenes in Antonio Diego Voci’s (VOH-chee 1920-1985) studio. Each day when Diego painted was always a mystery as to what he would create because his skills and talents were outside the bounds of one style.
“Each movement had its great masters, but there are very few who could create art unconfined by a single style like Diego.” – Christopher Voci.
Words from Canadian Collector James Thomson who shares his interpretation of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH- chee) painting titled “Women Working in the Field”
“This painting was done in very Earthy Brown values of Colour. Three Women gleaning the Harvest. Vincent Van Gogh was captivated by the artistic work of Jean-Francois Millet. I believe that Diego was also attracted by Millet’s paintings of the hard working poor. Diego, I believe captured the essence of these gleaners’ painted as though they are covered by the soil that they must through to salvage wheat or other produce after a Harvest. Van Gogh’s masterpiece of “The Potato Eaters” and other harvesting paintings he did were I’m sure inspired by Millet’s body of works. So I’m very happy to have this somewhat different Oil of Women with Bowed Backs, dirty gowns and aprons foraging to collect food for their families.”
Note: this painting is the only known painting with a wax stamp. The wax stamp says “Naffouj Gallery”, who represented Antonio Diego Voci from 1966-1970

Wiesbaden Germany is a city of culture and beauty. Tourists from all corners can be found walking and shopping on the famous Wilhemsstrasse. It is there that Siegfried Dahms displayed magnificent works by DIEGO in his luxurious gallery space.
Here are two pages from a 1979 catalog designed by Adolph Merkt, Taunusstein (the town where DIEGO’s widow Helga continues to live in the home where she and DIEGO lived and worked). The words are those of Herr Dahms.
“DIEGO creates works of art which are full of expression and timeless beauty, which deeply impress and fascinate people with its exceptional appeal, and instill the desire to possess.
DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people. They understand, they get excited about, and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art. The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immense that people gradually acquire more and more of his work. DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”
