EARLY DIEGO VOCI DISCOVERY UNVEILED!

Antonio Voci signature A Voci Blacksmith painting

Here is one of 3 paintings known to be sold by Schlossgalerie in Zurich, Switzerland; a period when Schlossgalerie in Zurich provided Diego (Voci) a studio (mid 1963-1964) where master paintings were created.

Mr. Buri owner of Schlossgalerie in Zurich during that time period sold Diego’s works under the name “Antonio Voci”.

This painting of a blacksmith was discovered by Susan Vogler Pinfold.  Susan sent this image to the Diego Voci Project and is referenced as “The Smithy” 57 ½” x 69″ oil on canvas.  This painting is signed “A Voci” and on the plaque the name is “Antonio Voci“.

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.”

 

#MODIGLIANI, EXHIBITION IN PARIS BRINGS TOGETHER WORLD’S GREATEST ARTISTS

Modigliani Red Hair Woman

Modigliani was one of the modern master painters who inspired Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) “Artist of a Thousand Faces”.

Here is a work by Diego Voci from the collection of Jacqueline Risch of Germany that gives hints of the Modigliani influence while remaining distinctly Diego.

IS THIS #JOSIANE?

George Roberts, a #Diego Collector shares his “Nude” #painting that resembles the look of Josiane, the first wife of Diego Voci.

You can read a bit more on Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#First_marriage

George Roberts, shares his story about how he acquired this Diego work of art:

“We have a “nude” painting by Diego that was purchased at the Patch Barracks Officers Club in Germany in the late 1960’s from an American female who told us that this was a painting of Diego’s first wife. We paid $250.00 for the painting which was a lot of money in those days. We did not meet Diego. The painting is oil on canvas and measures approx.31” x 21” in the original frame. There is no title on the back of the canvas however a number 1697-9.” (The number on the back of the canvas represents the timing of the painting was complete)

See here images of Josiane (taken in the 1960’s) to compare with the Diego painting owned by George Roberts.

WHEN DID #INNOCENZO BECOME #DIEGO?

On this day on 10 August (1920) in Gasperina, Italy, Giuseppe Antonio Voci and Arcangela Messina Voci welcomed their second son, Antonio Innocenzo Voci  into this world… nicknamed “Toto” as a kid.  Antonio Voci never liked his middle name Innnocenzo.  It does not appear again in official documents other than the birth certificate on file in Gasperina.  He took the nickname “Diego”.

Tony Voci, nephew to Diego recalls traveling in Europe with his artist Uncle and about every hour they would stop at a café for a smoke and espresso.  To the surprise of Tony Voci, Diego was greeted as “Diego” everywhere.   “Diego” was his own celebrity.

Diego and Tony Enhanced

The name “Diego” signed on his artwork didn’t come into play until 1966.  At encouragement of Naffouj Gallery he began signing his paintings “Diego”.  Prior to that it was some form of VOCI.  See signature section on #Wikipedia:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#Gallery

The last known official document during Diego’s life was his 1976 Taunusstein Germany residence registration (see below) where “Diego” is listed as his middle name.

Taunusstein Certificta of Registration 31.3.1976 COPY for Helga

The December 10, 1985 Death Certificate ignores the birth middle name.

Some have wondered if Diego would have been more famous keeping the more unique name “Innocenzo” as his signature, rather than get lost in a swelling sea of Diegos, “Diego who?” .

Here’s a rewarding way to wish Antonio Diego Voci Happy Birthday.  Go to YouTube, click https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Diego+Voci and take a wonderful museum tour, a 20 year Diego retrospective covering two floors.  Or go to #Google, search “Diego  Voci” and click “Images”.

DiegoVoci™, internationally collected #Italian artist (1920-1985) was raised to know the significance of caring for his family. DiegoVoci™ Historian since 1973, Coop Cooprider, during interviews with Diego, his wife Helga, and numerous family members, was reminded that Antonio Diego Voci wanted a different life than #VanGogh and #Modigliani. Here an excerpt from the DiegoVoci™ #Cooprider Biography:

“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.”

“MY NEW ABODE” (Helga Voci)

Helga wrote:
Hallo again, I send you a few pictures of my new little house with the walls full of Diego’s paintings…”

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, sent snapshots of her new Abode(a downsized dwelling) which is located behind their original Taunusstein home / studio they purchased in 1976.

“Helga lived with Diego’s ghost speaking to her from the canvases covering the walls of their German home where Diego had his studio. Diego paintings would stay on those walls and remain in a kind of time capsule.” Written by Chris Voci, grand-nephew of Diego Voci

Helga Voci kept possession of her treasured Diego hand painted “Kabinett shown below.
