Since late 2009, the Diego Voci Project has been in a worldwide search for the best of Diego Voci oil paintings. We just found this “VOCI” masterpiece in Lithuania for $3,500 complete door to door.
Diego Voci; Pferde auf Weide; 61x108cm oil on canvas, signed “Voci”
This is only the 4th “VOCI” discovered so far from the era of Diego’s connection to the Schlossgalerie (who served a wealthy horse owner clientele) in Zurich advertised as “Antonio Voci”, 1962-1965. It is the first that DVP could acquire for the day a generous benefactor is willing to finance a major Diego Museum Exhibition.
In his early career internationally collected artist Antonio Innocenzo Voci (1920-1985) signed his works some form of VOCI (VOH-chee). He was known his nickname by “Diego”. About 1966 he began using the “Diego” signature through 1985.
Here are the 3 other examples of “VOCI” paintings:
From the private DiegoVoci™ #ArtCollection of Leo Gerardo, a retired restaurateur, living in #Frankfurt, #Germany.
Le Teatre, 31” x 24”, #561488, oil on canvas
#Leo shares a story from the early #1980s where Siegfried Dahms, owner of then #Galerie Dahms in #Wiesbaden, Germany saw this painting and offered Leo DM 20,000 (US $11,153). Siegfried Dahms said he could sell it (Le Teatre by DiegoVoci™ ) the next day to an #Opera #Tenor “#Pagliacci” performing in the famous #HessichesStaatsheater in Wiesbaden. Leo said he was tempted to #sell, but turned him down. Leo believes once the art world discovers DiegoVoci™ art the value of his artwork will escalate.
On October 7, 2014 an ad appeared on Craigslist in Zürich in search of “Diego” artwork. Great idea! If they do find some, it will be quite a treasure! One is not likely to find a “Diego“, a signature not used … Continue reading →
