Just returned from #NYC and stood before Claude #Monet‘s “Meules” (1890) in the showroom at Sotheby’s days before last night’s record breaking price of $111 Million Monet. (click on image to read more) This work of Monet’s is just as extraordinary on image here as it is in person. (L. Camargo)
Mario Voci, nephew to Diego Voci, recalls a moment in DIEGO’s life, where the flair of his character shines through:
“Here is the story of uncle Diego and the Red Carpet:
Diego knew of this meeting of #influential people where he wanted to be to talk to a couple of persons he was interested in. But, the meeting was #invitation only and my uncle obviously didn’t have one.
So Diego hired a #limousine and chauffeur complete with red carpet with the plan to get in without an invitation.
At the right time the limousine slowly drove in front on the entrance of the building, the chauffeur got out of the car and immediately spread a #red carpet for my uncle Diego to walk on from the car right to the entrance with all the people making room for this very important #celebrity whom they greeted with admiration even if they had no idea who this person was.
He had no trouble getting into the function.
A classic example of uncle Diego’s cheek and class.”
Chris V. had it right when he said, “Each movement had its great masters, but there are very few who could create art unconfined by a single style like Diego.”
The Diego Voci Project just received a cubistic portrayal of Venice from Diego collectors Morton Family after waiting 40 years to find them again. They’ve owned a large Diego Collection since that time.
The Diego Voci Project has seen many exceptional cubist interpretations by Diego and “Gondole” ranks at or near the top. We have asked the Morton’s for a better image reproducible for the Diego Archive, but, we couldn’t wait to share this masterful Diego art work with all of our members of the Addicted Diego Collectors Club. Also to tempt the “New Generation” of art collectors to seek out and own a Diego.
Many of the original Diego collectors who bought directly from Diego (1965 thru 1985) are dead, dying or downsizing and their paintings are coming on the market everywhere. People in the know are buying at very low prices from people who don’t know the significance of Diego’s great body of artwork.
