Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci 1920-1985, speaks of her experience of her late husband. #Diego liked to be “Seen” and “Be Seen” at the finest of places… all money made from his art.
“I must say at that time I had met many artists who were quite poor, they were all seriously working, they mostly had small ateliers, no comfort, happy when they sold a painting, and then invited the others. And when they didn`t sell – just eating bread and black coffee. Nobody had a car, in fact DIEGO was called: “el pintor con coche” (which means- the painter with a car) . So, when I heard DIEGO inviting me in his car I thought: this man is showing off, besides the car he was very well dressed, like a businessman.”
