An Elderly Woman Discovered She Had Been Storing a Rare Renaissance Painting in Her Kitchen—and It Could Fetch $6 Million at Auction Next Month
Compliments of The Diego Voci Project team; finding hidden gems like the one above adds to our history. Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) captures history with his Madonna and Child paintings.
The translation of “Tendresse” in French means “Tenderness” in English. Diego captures the feeling of tenderness in this surrealistic oil on canvas between a man and a woman.
What is the object or part of the background that is black and white? Is it a pattern or a ghostly mask?

Glass paint is a very difficult medium that for several months challenged Diego. In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He cooked and painted with glass paint in front of Brown’s daughters Lynda and Marsha. Yes, Diego had to cook the glass paint. Here is one example called “Le Visage = The Face”, rich in color & full of expression, just like Diego himself, always challenging himself and pushing to paint outside the box.
A brief history of the Dr. Brown family:
Here also is the link to one of Diego’s best works rendered with glass paint: “Women and Blue Pottery”, It’s well worth a look. Go ahead and click: https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118.html#51910

“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.”

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.

Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) captured the most out of his #muses, not only the faces of people he met but the culture and everyday life. In this painting, you see ladies “reading” and relating. Diego, who is the “Artist of Thousand Faces”, absorbed the different cultures he traveled to.
The elongated neck… #Modigliani was the first artist to create this diversion in figurative art. The elongated neck became an embodiment of character adding to Diego’s creation of faces.
Where is this painting now? And the original owner? Mr. Feldmann from Maryland (who originally purchased this painting back in 1977).

Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) lived in “Two Worlds” as he pioneered throughout his life as an artist, weaving in and out of styles, excelling at all.
Like this surrealistic painting (1980), Diego pushed his own boundaries to always be thinking forward and creating the new. Here is a story in the foreground and a story in the background.
We are looking for this painting and the original owner Major Pizzo Jr. (purchased in 1980 for $890 USD) in Spanghahlem, Germany. Any information please contact us at email@example.com
