MOTHER’S PORTRAIT BY DIEGO AND NEW GENERATION

Mother's Portrait 003

This painting signed “D. Voci 1964” is an important historical find.  Why?

It fills a gap.  We have images of 2 watercolors Diego did as a gift to his nephew Tony signed D. Voci 1957 when they traveled Europe together.  We have the larger realism “Alt und Yung” signed “A.Voci” when Schlossgalerie, Zurich provided Diego a studio for R. Buri’s wealthy clients.  All three are represented in the Wikipedia biography Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci

Where were Helga and Diego living in 1964?  Helga wrote:

We came to a small medieval town in northern Italy, called Asolo with only 1000 inhabitants. We rented an apartment in a very old house in the middle of the town with a big terrace and Diego made his first real Studio. He mostly sold in Zurich in the Schloßgalerie.” 

The “Diego” signature began in 1965 with Joy Gibson, a Canadian art dealer.  That signature would dominate all others for the next 20 years.

Mike Kennedy is part of the “New Generation” of “Diego” collectors through the inheritance of his mother’s portrait.  Mike reached us through diegovoci.com and we requested additional information.  We await with eagerness the photos of his family and Diego.

To all viewers who had any experience with Diego, tell us.  Photos, too.  You may not think a sentence or two is important but it is… as you can see in the above email correspondence from just one collector.
