Christie’s shares “A good portrait offers so much more than the depiction of another person — it can offer a glimpse into their soul.”
“The Eternal Importance of Raphael!” And DIEGO
April 6, 2020 marked the 500th death anniversary of one of art history’s greats. Does Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino sill carry relevance today?
Internationally collected artist (100th Birthday) Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee) 1920-1985 traveled to (Raphael’s birthplace) Urbino, Italy during his career as an artist.
“As Diego’s acclaim grew, he ventured into publishing another series of prints handmade on special lithostones in [Raphael’s birthplace] Urbino, Italy in 1979, financed by Naffouj Gallery.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci
Helga Voci, widow to Diego Voci, shares:
In 1979 we had gone to Urbino, Italy where Diego made a series of very beautiful Lithographs. They were handmade on special litho stones. We stayed there for about 10 days and it was very hard work.

#Diego sez, How will #history portray the #TRUMP #Presidency years from now? Apparently, this #cartoon #artist #illustration is only a Chapter One portrayal of first 2 years. What’s next?
Remember another cartoonist speculating on June 1, 2015 what GOP candidate would run against Hillary? They are all in the men’s locker room. Guess who is peaking thru the window?

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci shares;
“In the beginning of the seventies we moved to #Bavaria, where my parents lived and where they intended to build a house and Diego was supposed to help them. So, we rented an apartment in the same #village. At the same time Diego did not like doing business with Joy Naffouj anymore; and Liliane Dussard, a #French lady who had been working for Naffouj in her #gallery for a while, wanted to change also.
So, Diego and Liliane decided to work together (around 1972 for several years). Liliane came to our house and she started to take contacts with #Nürnberg Ladies Clubs and Officers’ Clubs and had soon several dates for #exhibits. Now we needed frames, as everything was an #experiment. In the village, we found a #wood joiner and Diego made models of frames, so he started to do a collection of frames in different sizes, then we got these frames and Diego`s atelier became a frame workshop. Diego painted on #canvases and Liliane and me painted and #gold-plated the frames under Diego`s instruction. We were almost working day and night, as everything had to be ready for our first exhibit.
And then we started our first exhibit in the Officers’ Club Fürth near Nürnberg and it was a very big success.”
(This history is a little fuzzy with dates): Liliane Dussard (deceased now) represented Diego beginning in 1972 and times throughout his years until 1985.
Liliane arranged art auctions at Officer’s Club, hosted Gallery exhibits for Diego and shared Holidays with Helga and Diego. (see Art Auction flyer below for 1985 “Dussard Art Studio” in Taunusstein).
Lilian Dussard moved to the United States in 1973 and opened a gallery with her name: Dussard Art Gallery in Strafford, Virginia.
We know Liliane’s had this painting by Diego Voci in her own collection: “Retour du Travail” #451-260
Out of 4000 thousand paintings created by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee), our mission is to locate one by one with the help of Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, who sent us, Diego Voci Project (www.diegovociproject.com), a shoebox filled with index cards of images & titles, a cataloging system for Diego’s works of art.
