Below is the “Madonna and Child” rendered by Diego in 1957 for his brother Tony. Diego created a few other great oil paintings to add to Tony and Lois Voci’s Private #Collection for him to adorn the walls of their home in Pennsylvania.
1957 was a very full year, just like very other year was during Diego’s lifetime (1920-1985). Diego Voci invited his nephew Tony Voci to travel Europe with him while Tony was stationed in the Armed Services. Here is an excerpt of a great memory:
Tony Voci recalls driving with his artist Uncle and about every hour they would stop at a café for a smoke and espresso. To the surprise of Tony, Diego was greeted as “Diego” everywhere. “Diego” was his own #celebrity. Diego loved people!
Another nephew, Mario Voci, also shared two fun memories with his uncle Diego: https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/04/06/memories-of-uncle-diego-by-mario-voci-u-k/
