Since 2009, when the Diego Voci Project began with a find on the internet at ARTIFACTCOLLECTORS.com thanks to Mary Trimmins and a handful of Diego aficionados, the DVP has archived more than 1,000 artworks by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) (VOH-chee). The DVP, our all volunteer group, purpose is to increase the awareness and the value of the great body of artwork created by DIEGO! We locate, collect and catalog Diego’s works as the only officially authorized DIEGO VOCI ARCHIVE by Helga Voci, Diego’s widow and sole owner of the DIEGO VOCI ESTATE.
Shown above is one of the many faded #photographs taken with the old fashioned camera that used film! The DVP has been featuring many of them, thanks to Helga who located and sent us a box of Index Cards she started keeping in the mid 1970’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, had suggested ‘somehow tracking to whom the DIEGOs were sold‘. Since 2009, the DVP has been searching the world for more “LOST DIEGO ARTWORKS”. Some of Helga’s cards have images, but the majority do not.
HELP THE DIEGO VOCI PROJECT FIND MORE OF THE #MASTER DIEGOs ART!
Helga used both polaroids and film to catalog DIEGO’s works. Shown below is the same DIEGO “Gasthaus” scene once it had been framed. Note how the FLASH however obliterates the female figure to the right. When taking images of your Diego art, note that the DVP is best suited to archive DIEGO’s artworks with reproducible (min. 300 dpi) straight-on squared images taken without a flash. Sometimes daylight is great too if not too bright! Front and back of artworks are preferred. Include any provenance you have!

One of these artists is Christa Volkert-Vogel in Germany who met Diego several times on Diego’s travels to the #Schwarzwald (Black Forest) area, in this case #Offenburg. She not only loved Diego’s master artistry, Christa says “he greatly affected my art.” Christa purchased 5 DIEGO artworks, “La Lettura per il Teatro” (Reading for the Theatre), which she acquired on October 26, 1980, is shown here:
Christa remembers, “In my youth I had courses at the “Painters Vocational School” in Lahr, with several regional artists including Diego Voci, an internationally known artist and compelling contemporary painter. Thus a sound foundation was created that would help me in my future endeavors. After many years of making it my hobby, I studied art in 1998 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lahr. Years later I also taught there.”
(“In meiner Jugendzeit hatte ich an der Malerfachschule in Lahr, bei mehreren regionalen Malern sowie bei Diego Voci, einem überregional bekannten Künstler und überzeugenden Maler der Gegenwart, Kurse belegt. So wurde eine fundierte Grundlage geschaffen, die mir später zu einem Kunststudium verhelfen würde.”)
Christa also recalls one day that Diego was drawing several flower-themed artworks and says her own renderings were highly influenced from that one day forward!

#Helga Voci, #Diego’s widow, has provided the DVP a plethora of Index Cards she kept since the mid 70’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, suggested inventory records of the Diego aficionados such as Stephen Max and his wife Wendy. They represented Diego exclusively in Canada from 1980 until 1985 the year Diego passed.

#Shown here is Diego’s #surrealistic recollection of the moment that changed his life.
“My life took on new meaning. I became more.” Diego to Helga
Who could predict that fate would place 19 year old Helga #Drössler, sitting in the Paris #artist #café “Les Deux Magots” with a friend, only to find the famous #sculptor Gigi #Guadagnucci who was also an acquaintance of her’s, suddenly introduce her to the debonair artist #DiegoVoci ? Both their lives would change until Diego’s death in 1985.
