Marsha Largent Piper (daughter of Dr. Ogden Brown, collector of Diego Voci and once USA agent for Diego Voci) just sent the Diego Voci Project an image of herself with Diego during the 1973 Diego Voci Exhibition at the Broadmoor in Boulder, Colorado. Marsha recalls laughing often with Diego.
In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He experimented with Glass paint right in the Brown’s kitchen. Diego cooked and painted with glass paint. Yes Diego had to “cook” the glass paint.
From Marsha’s collection here is a wild example by Diego:
Diego Voci; Les Deux Clowns #361-465 oil on canvas 60x80cm
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.
