Almost 40 years ago, Lt. Col. Richard Cummings purchased “Indian”from Antonio Diego (referred to the biography written by Joy Gibson) at the Ramstein AFB in Germany. Receiving memories on how Diego collectors purchased Diego’s works of art adds to the history of Diego Voci and becomes a part of the Diego Voci Legacy.
Brandon Katryna Benson recently posted this original drawing titled “Die Mutter bit Kind (Mother and Child)” for sale on eBay.
The buyer of this exceptional drawing received the piece with glass that was completely shattered but fortunately after cleaning away all the shards of glass the drawing was unharmed.
Just a few years ago, the times have changed when no one knew who Diego Voci was on the internet and now paintings are frequently posted on various sites for sale and sold to new buyers of new generations.
In art, often the sign of a great artist is their ability to draw… and Joy Gibson Naffouj, the Canadian art dealer representing Diego during his art career … quoted…”Diego’s hand is so fast it disappears as you watch.” Tony Voci, nephew of Diego, observed during his 1957 trip in Europe with his uncle… “Diego drew every waking minute“.
Drawing of this nature is done by Diego with certainty of line is complete in just a few minutes.
This Mother and Child subject matter is in memory of Diego’s trip to the Navajo Indians.
