#MUSES “Die Musen von Pernasus” by #DIEGO_VOCI

“Die Musen von Pernasus” by Antonio DIEGO_VOCI (1920-1985), 31.5 x 15.75 inches

These colorful #muses are a testament to Diego’s comment about women:

“A man look at woman… this is cerebral feeling. Venus is love god … who made her? In reality Venus never existed. I like for example fat woman … that’s the way I build Venus. Or I like the skinny woman … that’s the way I build Venus.” DIEGO #VOCI, 1974

Using glass paint on canvas, Diego did a series of experimental glass paintings. See more of Coop’s #DIEGO_VOCI collection: Art Collection from Cooprider Family Collection | Artwork Archive

#DIEGO_VOCI in #AMERICA

During a 1974 interview with John Krueger, about Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) he quotes DIEGO saying “I love America and the Americans”, enthuses Diego with the typical expansive gesture with his Fellini face in Mastroianni manner.” THAT WAS OUR DIEGO!!!

Writing for the #Stars_and_Stripes John further stated, “Diego’s productivity is the envy of other painters, and if he stays up all night these days it is to create at his easel. Mornings are for sleeping. Afternoons for sales. The ground floor of the house is a combination Studio & Gallery. American cars with their green U.S. Forces plates pull up and fill up with Diego Originals. I saw a young haired blue-jeaned officer squeezing wife son and newly-acquired Diego painting into a low-slung sports car. Many of the Americans come from neighboring Patrick Henry Village. They have seen Diego’s exhibits in German galleries or in the States. He travels regular to the US “where the art action is”. Helga and he drove coast-to-coast last fall and foundeverything so colorful so panoramic.””

Traveling to the Unites States of #America also combined trips to CANADA where Stephen and Wendy Max hosted DIEGO and Helga. Read more in our DVP July Newsletter:

#DIEGO #EXHIBITION 1981 #TORONTO, CANADA

Just over 40 years ago in Toronto Canada, Stephen and Wendy Max created an exhibit for Diego that was unprecedented on this continent. In the illustrious and exceptionally large Columbus Centre they presented Diego through their own Goldcrest Galleries LTD. Advertising in the Toronto Star the outreach was beyond what DIEGO had seen across the ocean. Stephen and Wendy new Diego well before they left Germany where Stephen was stationed with the Canadian Royal Air Force.

Little could we know that 30 years later Stephen and Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1974, would join forces to promote and enhance the legacy of Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Stephen has since created our diegovociproject.com website, produced and published three books, over 40 videos, and promotes a free monthly newsletter. There is a great story about how Coop and Stephen connected in 1974 and didn’t know it. Read more here: https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page15.html#88728
