SNEAK PREVIEW DIEGO 1,000 FACES BOOK

Catch a glimpse from the publisher which may or may not be in the final layout of latest book title “Diego; An Artist of a Thousand Faces” created by Stephen Max. 

We are revealing the process.  This is an example of the preliminary process. Everything is malleable.

While Stephen is pulling together phases of the new publication, here is a gem created by Stephen Max of the Diego Voci Project, a museum tour of works by Diego Voci.

FOND #MEMORIES FROM HELGA, DIEGO’S WIDOW

Words from Helga recently shared with us on October 17, 2019; “In 1968 we spent 6 months in Tenerife. At that time we had a Fiat sport car cabrio and we drove to Barcelona and took a boat to Tenerife, it took 4 days and almost all passengers were seasick.”

Me too, except Diego and a Swedish man. We became friends with him during the whole time we stayed there. We rented a small bungalow which was built on top of a big house and which had a very big terrace with a great view over the island and the sea. It was great. On this terrace Diego painted mostly and at that time he had a contract with Joy and Jawdat (Naffouj)and we would sent her about 20 paintings each month in a roll. We had a fantastic time there.”

DIEGO SEZ “LET BAUERNHAUS OUT OF JAIL!”

Diego Voci; “Bauernhaus” 40x30cm #471-678 oil on canvas est. 1977

This #village scene titled “Bauernhaus” probably should have been posted for your pleasure long ago even through somebody inadvertently got red pen ink on the image just above the #tree. We had put in it small pile of other images titled “Not usable”.  So here it is now. Nice work Diego! Framed by Helga Voci, Diego’s widow since cancer took him in 1985.

“La #fille du #port” by #DIEGO

La fille du port” owned by Tom Frinta  and his wife Ena is best described in Tom’s own words,                                                                                                                                                    “La fille du port” is actually my favorite picture. I look at it several times a day. There is a very precious meaning. Her expression shows that poverty does not reduce the human values. Her face is still so beautiful and sovereign although she cannot afford a new dress.”

La fille du port Image from Tom w Frame Cropped 70x80cm 641-037

La fille du port” (Girl from the Harbor), Oil on Canvas, 70×80 cm, #641-037)

After connecting with Tom in March of 2015, the DVP found that not only did Tom share an exciting and clandestine adventure with “Diego” himself, this exquisite oil painting by Diego has a story of it’s own. To read about their “energizing” #adventure click on link at bottom of the WP post.

Circa 1973 Helga #Voci began keeping index cards of Diego oil #paintings, cards not found again until this year. Of recent DVP discovered 2 cards for the same painting. Coop has been the Diego Voci #Historian since #1973 and he and wife Patti continue to collect Diego #artwork and proudly display them with no intent to let go of any Diego artwork!

In 1974 Coop purchased“La fille du port” in Diego’s studioDiego later, on Christine Khan’s behalf, asked Coop & Patti for some of their Diego collection to keep Christine in business.  Since Coop let Patti choose a few, he had no idea which paintings were selected. Fortunately and unfortunately it ended up including the “La fille du port”.La fille du port 3 Images in 1 for post 3 DEC 2017

Once we made the connection of 2 Index cards selling the same painting the mystery was solved. Sold to Coop in 1974, it was resold to Tom in 1980, who proudly refers to Diego as his “close friend Antonio”.  “La fille du port” is in good hands with Tom and Ena.

Coop says “Tom has great taste”and that had he known Patti selecting this one          he’d have stopped her!
