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

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….
#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

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 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!
