#DIEGO #ART REVISION #NOT #PALETTE KNIFE!

Diego Voci; Donna Seduta 19 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ Oil on Canvas Private Collection

“This is a unique face that never takes its eye off you, thinking what?  The paint is unusually heavy, probably to disguise the painting formerly existing under this one; applied to wood, rather crudely, but, overall, I would place in the category of very special.  Previously, it’s been noted as palette knife.  I see no evidence of that, rather a prominent texture of an aggressive artist hand marking bold indentations with the opposite end of his amazing brush.” – Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Art Historian 

The artist is internationally collected Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985)

HELLO RICHARD ESGATE: PATTI & I MISS YOU

Rich in warmth, kindness and charm, this guy we loved was taken away much too soon. Although Arlene stands high in every way, Richard put her even high upon a pedestal; paraphrasing Bette Midler “He was the Wind Beneath My Wings.” Richard would say it was the other way around. Here’s a hug, Arlene. And Richard if the chance allows, check in with us from time to time.
Your Friend, Coop

A HALF MILLION BECOMES A “BLIET” IN HISTORY AND A “BREEN”, TOO

Cartoonists Bliet & Breen nail it, without words or names telling the story of two days in history.

Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, living in Germany remembers that Diego thought of himself as a superior cartoonist. Helga treasures the one Diego did of her Dentist father, https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-histor…/Page2.html… ; one of the few known to exist out of thousands.
