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” 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!”
