When a new potential art collector made the first purchase, often it would be a clown by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee).
Then the new collector experienced the “Potato Chip Phenomenon”, being unable to stop buying just one Diego Voci painting. They become attracted by a unique magnetism in Diego’s masterly creations totally unconfined by just one genre.
The Diego Voci Project has been on worldwide search since 2009. We have only found about 25% of Diego’s works so far. The image of “Les Deux Clowns” above was taken on October 17, 1976 when purchased in Worms, Germany by proud owner JIM HOLT who contacted the Diego Voci Project to be cataloged in the Diego Voci Archive.
Often it was said “Diego” has too many styles. Collectors of the works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) own and treasure works in several “facets” ranging from realism, cubism, fauve, impressionism, and yes surrealism, and in which Diego excelled.
The Diego Voci Estate has just discovered lost images of about a dozen wonderful surrealistic examples of Diego’s exceptional talent which we will share with you over the next few weeks. If you know an owner, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
