After an interview with #DiegoVoci™ in December 1973, Victoria Williams, then a writer was helping #Coop Cooprider gather stories, photos, & related ‘Diego’ information to assemble a book. She wrote, “DIEGO dominates the space around him.” The interview was published in a local TV Guide in Germany: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/publications-diegovocitm/

The book did not happen in 1973, but last year in July 2015, Stephen Max and Coop Cooprider were able to select more than 100 images of Diego‘s art, an internationally collected Italian #Artist. Cooprider (DiegoVoci™Historian since ’73) recruited Stephen Max, from Alberta, Canada to join the DiegoVoci™Project (DVP). Stephen and his wife Wendy had exclusively represented Diego in Canada from 1981 until Diego’s untimely death from lung #cancer in 1985. Diego’s widow Helga Voci and their daughter Alessandra Voci still reside in Germany.

VINCENT #VAN GOGH ON #PASSION:

VAN GOGH Quote and Image POST (3) 7 MAR 2016 Social Media

Courtesy of FORBES and http://www.diegovociproject.com

DiegoVoci™, internationally collected #Italian artist (1920-1985) was raised to know the significance of caring for his family. DiegoVoci™ Historian since 1973, Coop Cooprider, during interviews with Diego, his wife Helga, and numerous family members, was reminded that Antonio Diego Voci wanted a different life than #VanGogh and #Modigliani. Here an excerpt from the DiegoVoci™ #Cooprider Biography:

“Among Diego’s many facets was a drive never to be poor, never to live a tormented drug ridden life of Amedeo Modigliani who at age 35 “died in Paris exacerbated by poverty only one exhibition to his credit” or the tortured life of Vincent van Gogh who died at age 37, with only one painting purchased in his lifetime.

Diego greatly admired the exceptional work of both artists; but, unlike both artists who found few buyers for their work, in their lifetime, Diego did for his.”

#MAX AND #DiegoVoci™PART TWO

Stephen and Wendy Max, #collectors of #DiegoVoci™ works of #art and past exclusive agent for Diego’s works in #Canada shares his personal experiences with #DiegoVoci™.

Diego’s paintings are wordless, eloquent and #joyous expressions of Diego, a man and an artist we have known”. …Stephen and Wendy Max December 1985

Suonatrice-di-linto June 1974 TV Guide and Diego Afn TV Guide

“In 1975, we visited Diego and Helga at their home to meet with Diego and consider purchasing additional #paintings.

Diego and Helga were living in #Schwetzingen, #Germany at the time. Diego’s home housed art in so many #mediums and #forms, the visit was enchanting and we appreciated an enjoyable afternoon with Diego and Helga and a great bottle of #wine. On that visit we purchased the “Madchen Mit Tuch” and while there, we noticed an uncompleted painting, on an #easel in Diego’s #studio which was to become Suonatrice di Linto (February 1975).

Wendy and I instantly became entranced with the unfinished work and developed an unshakable bond with the painting, we needed to have it. We were able to convince Diego to complete the painting for us. This was truly a privilege to have witnessed the creation and completion of this painting which we enjoy as a masterpiece today.”

 This Guide to #TV shown with the image of “Suonatrice di Linto” was Stephen and Wendy Max first exposure to #DiegoVoci™ in #Germany 1974.                 https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/max-and-diegovocitm/

HUNGER FOR MORE DiegoVoci ™ SPARKS A #SEARCH

On the last day of 2015 Kami of the DiegoVoci™ Project (DVP) staff saw a post on Jacqueline’s #Facebook page. A DiegoVoci™ oil painting titled “La Lecture” was purchased by Jacqueline directly from Diego in #Ramstein, Germany:

La Lecture 31x23.5 in  RE DO by Max 2 Jan 2016

“La Lecture” Oil on Canvas by Antonio Diego Voci, ca 1975, 31″x 23.5″ (541001)

Regarding meeting with the great artist Diego, owner #Jacqueline Ping recalls,

“It was in 1975…a lifetime ago. I bought that painting as an investment painting hoping that someday he would be well-known.  I paid $300.00 for it at the time.  I still have his brochure from then.  Didn’t get an autograph but I should have, huh?”

Jacqueline also remembers,

“Diego was a very quiet soft spoken man. Diego and I conversed. We talked about his Indian paintings and his trip to #New Mexico. I remember telling him he looked like the American Indian and he said, ‘Yes people say that.’ Diego also mentioned how he really liked our #Southwest. We spoke of the similarity to parts of #Spain and #Italy. I was struck by the #artworks he had on display and Diego himself more than anything else.”

But, Jacqueline wanted more!

“I also wanted another which was a lady with a big red hat. I wanted both but could only afford one. It was exquisite and although I love the one I have. I have never forgotten her.” Kami said, “That reminds me of a Diego I think I have seen. I’ll try to find it.”

Kami searched through hundreds of images in the #DiegoVoci™Archive until she found a woman in a red hat and sent the image to Jacqueline:

BINGO. “Yes, that’s her!”
