Antonio DIEGO Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) grew up in the small town of Gasperina, Italy, where today all traditional processions are still practiced. Saints, Madonnas, …. all left an indelible impression on Antonio Diego Voci throughout his life.
#Internationally Collected Artist Antonio Diego Voci honored “Madonna” (The word is from Italian ma #donna, meaning “my lady“) all throughout his life as he created “My #Lady” in many of his works of art.
In the days of celebrating Christmas, we honor “Madonna and Child” as Diego honored Mother and Child in every day of his life, with his family, with every work of art he created his passion for life and joy, and giving to others with his gifts was what “Christmas is all about”
This is the first of 6 Diego’s as we count each day to #Christmas Day.
To view a selection of Diego’s Madonna and Childs, here is a board honoring those works:
1966, a young married couple, Americans living in Germany, bought their first “expensive” Diego Voci painting, “Madonna and Child”. They bought it for $150 on layaway, 3 payments. That was a big chunk of their small budget at the time.
The artist Diego Voci was represented by Joy Gibson, a Canadian art dealer operating out of Zweibrucken, partnering with Dr. Jawdat Naffouj.
The Coopriders, Coop (he’s the skinny one on the left 6’2”) and Patti just could not stop at one (The Potato Chip Phenomenon). They knew Diego and Helga through the years buying many more Diego’s.
Coop became the volunteer Diego Voci Historian in 1973 and began the volunteer Diego Voci Project in 2010, a property of the Diego Voci Estate, and in 2011 began the official Diego Voci Archive to search for and catalog all the lost Diego oil paintings scattered around the world. We’ve identified approximately 1,000 of 4,000 so far.
