“Vincent” Could Be a Song About Diego Voci

A line in Don McClean’s haunting song about Vincent #VanGogh is “Weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand”. The “weathered faces” of people being deported likewise inspired Diego’s hand with brush to canvas.

FRUSTRATED VAN GOGH COULDN’T SELL ANYTHING

#VanGogh artistic talent was among the all-time best.  But, it didn’t sell until many years after his #death; and now Van Gogh’s works bring in multi-millions worldwide.

Van Gogh

As noted in the Wikipedia biography (see below) of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-85), he was motivated not to live the cash-strapped lives of Van Gogh and Modigliani and lived the good life solely from the buyers of his art.

“Diego thrived on camaraderie, as did other artists before him, such as Amedeo Modigliani, both “figurative” artists, both Italian born, both migrated to Paris.  Among Diego’s many facets was a drive never to be poor, never to live a tormented drug ridden life of Amedeo Modigliani who at age 35 “died in Paris exacerbated by poverty only one exhibition to his credit.” or the tortured life of Vincent van Gogh who died at age 37, with only one painting purchased in his lifetime. Diego greatly admired the exceptional work of both artists, but, unlike both artists who found few buyers for their work, in their lifetime, Diego did for his.”

 

Great Artists and Self Portraits

It seems great artists always resort to self portraits, Van Gogh(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Gogh, and Cezanne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cezanne), ,etc. DIEGO, too, (but less often than the others). Here is a profile self portrait and a profile photo.
