POTENTIAL #DIEGOVOCI MODEL – KICKING HERSELF

Cheryl McCarra Fairchild and her husband Dan were stationed in Germany from 1974-1977 in the Karlsruhe area. Cheryl remembered to Kami (Diego Voci Project):

“I met Diego for the first time at an OWC (Officer’s Wives Club Luncheon).  I fell in love with Diego’s work and his personality. I wanted to buy an oil painting.  On a Lieutenant’s salary we eventually settled for 3 Diego lithographs which we bought over time from Lillian Dussard.”

“When our family retired to the US in Georgia years later, I started searching online for DIEGO paintings. I found our first oil painting: “Giovene Ragazza”.  The profile reminded me of my mother”.

Giovene Ragazza  44990

Diego’s vibrant and bright colors in the scarves almost contradict the calm serene and fine features of her eyes and lips.

Cheryl recalls;

“Diego actually asked me to model for him.  At the time I had two small children and saw no way to do that. I’m kicking myself now!”

Though Helga Voci, Diego’s widow, states;

“Diego rarely used models, Diego painted from memory.” 

Helga was referring to studio models.  Evidence is frequent that out of the studio face to face in the moment, a face of a woman or man, young or old, would inspire Diego.  Example: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page9.html#91027; an interesting story of a black beauty with intriguing eyes.

And stay tuned for more exciting news from the Fairchild’s and the “New Generation”. 

This is just one of many examples of the impact Diego had on people.  Please share your stories like these at www.diegovociproject.com or

THE CASE OF THE PHANTOM? #VOCI BROTHER

Can anyone out there read #Italian?  Help us!  As DiegoVoci™ #historians we are seeking the truth.

The issue is:

Did, or did not, the deceased father of artist DiegoVoci™, Giuseppe Antonio Voci  have a brother?

In the little town of Gasperina, Province of #Catanzaro, #Italy, the birthplace of DiegoVoci™ resides an elderly gentleman in his nineties who claims he was the best friend of Diego’s father Giuseppe Antonio Voci and he insists did NOT have a brother!

But, what appears to be the images of the official birth records going back 192 years to 1823 from the town’s Registrar of Vital Statistics (“Ufficio dello Stato Civile”) in #Gasperina seem to indicate there was a brother named Saverio.  Two sons appear to be born to the same mother and father Vincenzo Voci (1847) and Elisabetta (neé Procopia).  One of the sons born 1877 was Giuseppe Antonio (Diego’s dad). The other son, Saverio Voci, was born 3 years earlier to the same mother and father.  Therefore the official papers appear that Diego’s father Giuseppe Antonio did have an older brother named Saverio.

Help us with the Italian on the Birth Certificates.  Is the #Gasperina Registrar’s office in error?  Or is the elderly gentleman mistaken?  They can’t both be correct.  It would be highly unlikely there were two sets of Vincenzo and Elizabetta in the same time period?

Here is the evidence from the “Ufficio dello Stato Civile” Comune di Gasperina :

  1. Giuseppe Antonio Voci was born 1877 to Vincenzo Voci and his wife Elisabetta (neé Procopia). 01.26.2015 Giuseppe Antonio Voci Birth Certificates for Website with Marks
  2. 3 years earlier a Saverio Voci was born 1874 to the same parents as Giuseppe Antonio01.26.2015 Saverio Voci Birth Certificate for Website with Marks - Copy

1a. Here is the 1877 signature of the Gasperina official on the birth certificate of Giuseppe Antonio.01.26.2015 Official Lugi signature from Giuseppe Antonio Voci Birth Certificate

1b.  Here is the 1874 signature of the same official on the birth certificate for Saverio, with the same parents for both.  01.26.2015 Official Lugi signature from Saverio Voci Birth Certificate

The questions being asked by members of the Diego side of the Voci family are:  Why haven’t we ever heard there was such a brother? And, if he did exist, what happened to him? Is the Saverio birth certificate suspect?

What do you think?

Jenne fille en reve from Ebay

“Jenne Fille en Řeve”, 31 ½” x 27 ½”, oil on canvas

Diego, an International collected artist, is forging his way posthumously to the front of the art market.  There are many hundreds of Diego collectors out there. Diego paintings hang on walls in USA, Canada, UK, Switzerland, Italy and Germany.  As generations evolve paintings are cyclical and new owners and appreciators of Diego’s works are surfacing at low prices.  That will change.

The volunteer Diego Voci Project highlights a recent listing in Germany of a “Diego” painting currently for sale. Owner is in Heidelberg. http://www.ebay.de/itm/Antonio-Diego-Voci-Italien-1920-1985-Wiesb-abstraktes-Olgemalde-grosformatig/191304281377?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D23937%26meid%3D7a44faa7a1154bd698a643aa56c7c64e%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D9172%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D191288142885

Text from Seller about the painting:

“Thank you for asking but I’m sorry to tell you that I don’t know a lot about this painting. The owner was on old lady from Heidelberg, she had two paintings from Diego. She was wealthy and bought only expensive things. Maybe she went to Wiesbaden for shopping and bought the two painting from Diego at Galerie DAHMS Wiesbaden. However, this painting is in a very, very good condition, colours very fine, and you can see a lot of details.”
