Often it was said “Diego” has too many styles. Collectors of the works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) own and treasure works in several “facets” ranging from realism, cubism, fauve, impressionism, and yes surrealism, and in which Diego excelled.
The Diego Voci Estate has just discovered lost images of about a dozen wonderful surrealistic examples of Diego’s exceptional talent which we will share with you over the next few weeks. If you know an owner, contact us at email@example.com.
