This link to the GOOGLE Gallery takes you to February 4, 2018 GOOGLE selections:
Coop Cooprider has 4 Aldo Paolucci paintings, also from Naffouj, 2 nudes and 2 abstract.
It is amazing the influence Jawdat Naffouj had on so many collectors of art. He still has the little gallery in the Altstadt of Landstuhl, Germany. Its 50 years since we bought our first painting from him and Joy.
This still is from a video we shot in 2012. He was showing me his contract with DiegoVoci™.
These are the first two of 4 pages of the first published #DIEGO article resulting from my 1974 short lived efforts to help #DIEGO become better known.
The last two pages follow in the next post. The article was written by Victoria Williams. A photo of her interviewing #DIEGO will follow.
Notice the pathos #DIEGO captured in the #clown. The original oil was stolen from the attic of the house The Coopriders rented in #Germany. The Coopriders suspected it was taken by the landlord’s son. There is a $30,000 reward for it’s return.
In January 1965, DIEGO had an exhibition at the Schlossgalerie in #Zurich, #Switzerland.
Notice the reference to the name in the “Neue Züricher Zeitung” newspaper ad “Antonio Voci”not“DIEGO”.
Helga Drössler had been with DIEGO for five years. Thereafter he mostly signed“DIEGO”. Helga and DIEGO married in #Denmark in 1968.
Notice the style. #Realism. Both different from the works DIEGO Collectors are familiar with. It illustrates his #versatility and #craftsmanship (#Picasso painted realism when he first began. So did #Dali).
” Lady on the Beach, 1972 is impressive in its high-contrast composition and vibrant color as well as its content and size (23″ x 40″). This and other works from the early 1970s shows DIEGO stretching his artistic chops into the realm of #surrealism with fauvist-inspired color. We love this painting because of its uniqueness and the craft with which #DIEGO frames the Lady within the #surrealistic landscape. The composition is at once pure figurative DIEGO within a broader surrealistic and #fauvist backdrop.
DIEGO positions the Lady reclined with a vase, referential perhaps to the symbolism of Mary Magdalene . The typical DIEGO comparisons of Modigliani and Matisse are expanded in this piece with the thought and color of #André Derain and maybe Maurice de Vlaminck. It is certainly a different and extraordinary piece.” C.V. 2012
…….O.K., maybe that’s a stretch, but…..Diego’s ART is of exquisite quality and depth it draws’ you in completely. His works reach your soul and speak to you with intense emotion. The heart and soul of Diego radiates from every one of his paintings.
Who wouldn’t want to reduce stress, anxiety and increase positive emotions.

From the DIEGO Voci Collection ca. 1974, a piece from his glass painting series, the painting titled “Women and Blue Pottery” is done with Glass Paint on canvas.
DIEGO defies being put in a box. He was constantly experimenting. Glass paint was a real challenge. There is no second chance to change the paint once it hits the canvas. DIEGO’s sure hand is all the more evident in “Women and Blue Pottery”, one of a dozen known DIEGO works with glass paint.
