Cartoonists Bliet & Breen nail it, without words or names telling the story of two days in history.
Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, living in Germany remembers that Diego thought of himself as a superior cartoonist. Helga treasures the one Diego did of her Dentist father, https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-histor…/Page2.html… ; one of the few known to exist out of thousands.
Diego Voci; “Au Cafe” #1141-153 70x80cm oil on canvas. Originally purchased back in 1976 at PHV by a Craig Jolley.
Today we do not know where this painting is or who owns it. Any information would be greatly appreciated to help the mission of the DVP, to catalog all of Diego Voci works of art with the Diego Voci Estate Archive. https://www.diegovociproject.com/
Margaret Carrow shares memories of her Aunt’s memories of how she collected her two internationally collected artist Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) paintings.
My Aunt lived most of her life in Europe working for the Air Force as an administrator of the Air Force schools, in Germany, France and Spain. She is 93 (in 2012) years old and I have moved her back to the states,along with her personal possessions including two of her paintings.She talked about the artist she knew while she was in Germany. The two oil paintings by Diego are signed on the front and the back. I have taken pictures of them and have included them with this letter. One of the paintings needs some repairs, and I didn’t know how I should have this done. My Aunt is living in a retirement home, and wanted her paintings to be with her. She told me that Diego was working on a painting for President Kennedy when she first met Diego.”

Carol Bachofner shares her internationally collected artist Diego Voci story;
“I own two original Diegos’ purchased in 1973 through Naffouj Gallery, in Landstuhl, Germany. I bought two large ones at the time at an art show through Naffouj Gallery. The exhibit was held at the “General Von Steuben” Hotel in Wiesbaden and Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) was there in person.
I later visited Diego at his home in Germany and purchased another small watercolor painting on wood directly from him. The colorful one on wood is a village scene. The other one is of a Pueblo village in the American southwest where Diego said he’d traveled. These are original and are signed by Diego. My two large Diego paintings are with me in Maine.”

Wiesbaden Germany is a city of culture and beauty. Tourists from all corners can be found walking and shopping on the famous Wilhemsstrasse. It is there that Siegfried Dahms displayed magnificent works by DIEGO in his luxurious gallery space.
Here are two pages from a 1979 catalog designed by Adolph Merkt, Taunusstein (the town where DIEGO’s widow Helga continues to live in the home where she and DIEGO lived and worked). The words are those of Herr Dahms.
“DIEGO creates works of art which are full of expression and timeless beauty, which deeply impress and fascinate people with its exceptional appeal, and instill the desire to possess.
DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people. They understand, they get excited about, and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art. The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immense that people gradually acquire more and more of his work. DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”

This #village scene titled “Bauernhaus” probably should have been posted for your pleasure long ago even through somebody inadvertently got red pen ink on the image just above the #tree. We had put in it small pile of other images titled “Not usable”. So here it is now. Nice work Diego! Framed by Helga Voci, Diego’s widow since cancer took him in 1985.
