In honor of the last few days celebrating Black History Month, the Diego Voci Project presents number 7 in the “COLORBLIND SERES” with “Jeune fille Avec Port Jaune”. An exquisite portrait of an African “Young Girl with a Yellow Pot” acquired by Captain Gene Page in 1974 from Antonio DIEGO Voci at Patch Barracks in Stuttgart, Germany.
Captain Page had very good taste! Appreciate the bold color contrast and the folds in the fabric. Where is this painting today? We would like to know.
The image comes from hundreds of index cards, which Helga, Diego’s widow kept to document Diego sales. Faded by time the old photos lost their OOMPF. Shown here is the index card and photo, next to what the painting may have looked like as originally envisioned by Diego. Stephen Max, Producer for the DVP, brought the beautiful young African girl in the painting back to life.
Here are links to the series the “Colorblind” presented by our DVP team. Diego embraced every skin color. Because in truth, ALL lives matter:
