The world is infatuated with #celebrities.
But, don’t tell #DIEGO, we’re making him a #celebrity. Diego said,
“You want to make me something in the sky with wings…go ahead.
You want to make me famous…go ahead. But, this is not my life.” -1974
#Vincent_Van_Gogh whose works were rejected during the #artist’s troubled lifetime would have gladly traded places with Antonio DIEGO Voci who in his lifetime (1920 – 1985) sold thousands of #paintings.
In 1973, Siegfried Dahms owner of #Galerie Dahms on the prestigious #Wilhelmsstrasse in #Wiesbaden said,
“ We cannot get enough DIEGOs for our collectors.
He is exactly the taste
of the #German people.”
#Diego died at home December 10, 1985. Diego’s studio/residence was nearby to Galerie Dahms in Taunusstein where his widow #Helga #Voci still lives today.
