41 YEAR TRIBUTE TO DIEGO

Here another example of how Diego Voci’s work of art is appreciated by his collectors.

pictureofpicturehangingIn a 1972 letter to Helga Voci from Colonel Norman W Marohn, it was stated that a Diego Voci work of art titled The Group of Fisherman” will be presented to the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh, for their permanent collection at the Forrest R Polk Library in memory of “The Emil and Louise Marohn Family and the James Gibbs Family“.” It was also requested in the letter that “a biographical sketch of Diego Voci that could be placed permanently with his painting at the University”.

Paintings like these donated to public institutions mean a great deal and the press was there to document this one specifically. See below a photograph published August 8, 1972 in Fond du Loc Reporter, of a graduate student hanging this Diego Voci painting in the library where it has hung for over 41 years.

Recently, in the Forrest R Polk Library transformation, painting was returned back to the Mahron family. In addition to this painting held in a public institution for over 40 years, this work of art was recently published in the deluxe collector’s book titled “The Beauty of Diego” by Stephen Max.

Here is the page in book of “The Group of Fisherman”
