Antonio Diego Voci, master figurative painter (1920-1985) once claimed he only paints from memory.  Too bad he’s not here to share more about this provocative memory he captured here, titled:

“En Regardant La Mer” (Looking at the Sea)

Helga Voci recalls, “The buyer may have been a German Doctor.”  No name is on the index card.  Siegfred Dahms owner of Galerie Dahms said this about Diego;

“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 immerse that people gradually acquire more and more of his work.  DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”

THE #POTATO #CHIP #PHENOMENON… ANOTHER #DIEGO #ART #HOARDER…

After a seven year search, The Diego Voci Project recently received an email from a Diego Voci art collector that owns 9 originals.  Here are a few words Stan Wilcox shares about his experience with collecting Diego Voci works of art:

“Dear Coop, the repetitive hoarding phenomenon pattern we hear about is mysterious, but no surprise given the fact that his (Diego Voci) work speaks to the soul and you couldn’t settle for just one! My wife and I were fortunate to have met the #master (Diego Voci) with an invite to his home in #Wiesbaden Taunusstein for #wine, #cheese, #piano music and a pen and ink sketch created for us by Diego unfolding before our very eyes that I now have displayed in my sitting room that is a scene that I believe is poking fun at #Dali.”

Here is one of paintings from the Wilcox collection of Diego’s.  This piece title “Femme fille en train de faine ses devoirs” is an oil of a young girl at her desk doing her homework. On the back of the canvas is numbered #11802-111.

We thank Stan Wilcox for sharing his story and one of his Diego Voci paintings with us with the rest of the Diego Voci collectors.  One by one we are locating all of Diego’s works of art to archive with the Diego Voci Estate.  Enter Diego Voci on Google, click images on bar at top to see the Google gallery of Diego Voci works.

Thank you and many blessings for a Happy Thanksgiving from the Diego Voci Project!

#PORTRAITS? “THAT IS NOT #ART,” Diego Voci, 1974

Image

Diego felt his creativity was confined in portraits. #DiegoVoci deeply resisted the restriction. What about caricatures? Diego said,“They are fun. I can be creative.”

John, age 9 and Mitch, age 5 1/2 (1976) by #Diego

In 1976 Frank Freeman somehow convinced Diego to do portraits of his two sons John and Mitch. Frank and his wife had met – and seen Diego several times while living  in #Wiesbaden, Germany. They had even bought a “Landscape” from Diego in Schwetzingen (#Heidelberg area in 1974). See the Freeman’s and other #landscapes on our Pinterest “Landscape” board: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/landscape-gallery/

One day Frank visited “Galerie #Dahms” in Wiesbaden’s fancy Wilhelmsstrasse shopping district and saw a portrait of a young girl. Frank named her “Principessa” as it was unknown who she really was. Diego had  used “pastel and felt-tip on posterboard” to capture the young girl. “It was a commission, that was refused by the ‘buyer’ stating ‘It doesn’t look like my daughter’!”

Having not forgotten the exquisite portrait, for Frank it was “the inspiration for asking Diego to do my boys – over his protestations!” Just months before Frank and his family were due to return to the United States he commissioned Diego do portraits of his sons, John and Mitch, then 9 and 5 ½.

John, age 9 and Mitch, age 5 1/2 (1976) by #Diego

On a Sunday afternoon in mid-July 1976, I took the boys to his Wiesbaden home (Taunusstein), where Diego spent about 15-20 minutes capturing each boy’s likeness.” Frank recalls, “when I got home, I began to see the “Principessa’s” father’s viewpoint . . . the portraits weren’t really as the boys looked.” But “3 years later, comparing the boys to their portraits, they were EXACT likenesses!!! Diego had envisioned the boys as they would look a few years later. THEY matched what he had drawn!! Prescient!!”

A few days before leaving Germany Frank recalls to his surprise, “I got a call from Siegfried DAHMS, owner of the gallery, who informed me that DIEGO had instructed that I be given the portrait of “Principessa” in appreciation for our patronage.” Frank owns it.

“Principessa” Unknown Subject, “Who am I?” Diego drew me in 1974.

To this day, it is a mystery as to who the young girl may be. Frank hopes that someone out there may see this post! Do you know who she is?

Another rare portrait done in charcoal and pastels by #Diego of Mike Kennedy’s mother in the early 60’s can be seen: https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/mothers-portrait-by-diego-and-new-generation/
