Christie’s shares “A good portrait offers so much more than the depiction of another person — it can offer a glimpse into their soul.”
The clown genre by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-85) is among the world’s all-time best.
A wannabe jester himself, Diego loves to clown around, as you see in these two images followed by “The Clown” for which there is a $30,000 Reward offered.
Helga Voci who was beside Diego from 1960 to 1985 says “Diego liked to be entertaining and do funny things, stupid things”.
Maybe that’s why Diego was so fascinated with clowns, of which he painted many from memory.
There is a $30,000 REWARD OFFERED for one special clown stolen from Otterbach, Germany. Link to YouTube Video: https://youtu.be/T3ODYMxxBdc

“DIEGO VOCI 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.” – Herr Dahms, Galerie Dahms, #Wiesbaden
“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.” – Herr Dahms, Galerie Dahms, #Wiesbaden

These are the first two of 4 pages of the first published #DIEGO article resulting from my 1974 short lived efforts to help #DIEGO become better known.
The last two pages follow in the next post. The article was written by Victoria Williams. A photo of her interviewing #DIEGO will follow.
Notice the pathos #DIEGO captured in the #clown. The original oil was stolen from the attic of the house The Coopriders rented in #Germany. The Coopriders suspected it was taken by the landlord’s son. There is a $30,000 reward for it’s return.
