Diego VociAHAH! Kami Cooprider here! I came in this afternoon and saw this great post. It looked familiar. Voila! Carole Hackenbeck and her hubby Claude own it. Here is what she wrote to us late last year: “Hi, my husband is number 8 of a 10 children family. Number 7, his brother Michel was a major in the Canadian air-force and was stationed in Germany for a few years and he bought this painting! Unfortunately he died of a massive heart attack in September 1988 at the age of 39!! Our third son was born on September 30th 1988 which is the date of Diego Voci’s passing [Actual date of Death is August 10, 1985]!! His parents cherished this painting and when both were diseased the 9 siblings had a drawing to share the objects that everyone wanted and my husband won the painting which we love and reminds us of his closest brother!!!” and here is the Index card with Helga Voci handwritten info on Major Michel Lambert, Claude’s brother. Our Diego Voci Project Team will continue posting more of the the ‘lost’ paintings! Greetings from the DVP, Coop, Stephen Max and Lisa Camargo
Birthdays came and went in Diego’s world however one year Helga planned a special surprise. Helga invited her parents, Christine Khan and her children, Alessandra was 2 years old at the time, and they all flew to an island off the south of Spain, Menorca.
They rented an apartment and to celebrate Diego’s birthday. Friends and family gathered around the garden to celebrate Diego with lobsters and fun festivities. Diego loved camaraderie and even played cards with the fisherman.
While there on Menorca, Diego captured ideas in his mind and here are two examples of sketches (one of 2 year old daughter Alessandra in the yard) were inspired by his birthday celebration.

“Diego never copied” said the widow, Helga of her internationally collected artist husband Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Others who knew Diego confirmed he did everything from either memory or pure creativity. The experienced eye can spot Cezanne’s influence but, the work remains distinctly Diego. (Check out the #pears).
Helga found this faded (the rich color is gone) Polaroid indicating Joseph Di Giacinto paid only $380 in Stuttgart, #Germany in 1975. “Hey Joseph!” Contact us at diegovociproject.com.
