#DIEGO #VOCI #FACES #SERIES PART 5

#Below are the last five in the last of this Diego Voci Project Faces Series:

Group 5 1 NOV 2017

#DIEGO VOCI #Faces- Where are they now? Faded Polaroids found by Helga in a shoebox.

#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.

Learn how Stephen Max and Coop Cooprider were linked to Diego’s growing success in Germany and then Canada – all because of a TV Guide:  https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page15.html#88728

Above on the left is “Suonatrice di linto” is one of 20 plus DIEGO artworks owned by Stephen and Wendy Max, in Edmonton, Albert, Canada. We thank them for their volunteer efforts made to increase awareness and value of the great body of artwork created by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) and promoting DIEGO on Social Media.

FOUND: #NATIVE-AMERICAN “INDIANER” by DIEGO VOCI FOR $6.99

INDIANER Zweigle 28 JAN 2018 KC Source GMAIL

Diego Voci: “Indianer” 17″x14″, Pastel and Tempera on Paper.

Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, recently acquired the above  “Indianer” from a couple in Texas for $300 including shipping. Brenda and Ralph Zweigle of lotathings.com came across this Diego #discovery in a #Goodwill store for $6.99! Not the first time the DVP has heard such stories! Do you recall the 97 cent buy? https://www.artifactcollectors.com/hot-buys-diego-voci-paintings-562.html
Coop bought the “Indianer” as a gift for Abel Sillas, one of Coop and Patti’s son-in-laws. Abel is from a “pueblo” north of Albuquerque and is a proud part Navajo Native American. Why is this significant? In 1973, Diego and his wife Helga on their 1st trip to the US included a Southwest destination. While there they traveled to several pueblos including Taos and Santa Fe. Diego rendered many a #Native-American from memory.
Abel Sillas married to Gabrielle, one of 6 daughters to Coop and Patti, helped raise two very talented, smart and very attractive children: Shane, 25, and Aliah, 21. Coop and Patti simply want to honor Abel for his role as a successful part in building their self-esteem, motivation and to make them feel loved. Shown here is the essence of good parenting! And, “Indianer” is an early b-day gift to Abel who only gets to celebrate every 4 years….

#DIEGO VOCI in “Café de #Paris”

#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

Cafe au Paris 1241-18180x70cm PHV 2 APR 75.jpeg.jpeg

Diego Voci “Café de Paris“, 1241-181, 80x70cm Mr. Wilson purchased 2 April 1975 for $710

Who could predict that fate would place 19 year old Helga #Drössler, sitting in the Paris #artist #café Les Deux Magotswith 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.

#DIEGO #FACES SERIES – PART THREE

The #Artist of a Thousand Faces”  Antonio Diego #Voci (1920-1985) internationally collected artist is mostly referred to as “Diego”. Although Diego’s versatility covered many #mediums, subject matters and #genres, the focus here in Part Three is in Diego’s mastery and #superior talent with  #faces.

#FACES SERIES PART THREE – faded #photos and #polaroids inventoried by Helga

Diego #aficionados know from their own collections that #Diego created what appear to be #portraits of real people who posed – Diego actually did most from memory. Diego’s figurative #art includes the clear precision of the detailed features in faces. See more at #Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/

#Clowns were a sure seller for #Diego and #Helga (Diego’s widow). He thrived into #cultures in Zurich and Paris. Anywhere actually See some of the Clowns we’ve have uncovered. Above one of such clowns was sold to Mr. Beckett on 5 October 1975 in Heidelberg, #Germany. Where is it now?

CELEBRATE #2018! BIGGER FAME AWAITS #DIEGO

We the volunteers of Diego Voci Project are gaining momentum in our worldwide search for the lost works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego #Voci (pronounced “VOH-chee” 1920-1985).

The Diego Voci #Project has published images of nearly 1,000 of about 4,000 #paintings scattered around the globe.

Le petit teatre 381-817 80x100cm 1490 CND Dollars 1978 POST NewYears Eve.jpeg

“Le petit téâtre ” (Oil on canvas 80 x 100 cm #381-817)

A great example is this newly discovered image of a Diego Voci #masterwork of actors awaiting to go on stage. It was purchased in 1978 by Mr. Denis #Provencher of #Canada. Denis bought the large oil painting titled “Le petit téâtre” at Diego’s studio for $1,490 Canadian Dollars.  But, we have no clue as to where it is now. Please be of help!

In the Gregorian calendarNew Year’s Eve (also known as Old Year’s Day or Saint Sylvester’s Day in many countries), the last day of the year, is on December 31 which is the seventh day of the Christmas season. In many countries, New Year’s Eve is celebrated at evening social gatherings, where many people dance, eat, drink alcoholic beverages, and watch or light fireworks to mark the new year.

Happy New Year!
