#DIEGO’S LAST HOURS – 33 YEARS AGO

Diego's last art work & smoking

That persistent urge to #draw that possessed #Diego from a young child carried into Diego’s last hours. The second weekend of December there was an open house in Diego’s home and studio; he was too weak to attend.  Yet he found the strength to draw one more piece for a door prize, his last work of art for the public, a cubist, ink drawing; followed by a small pencil sketch for Helga.

Diego, who smoked 40 cigarettes a day, succumbed to lung cancer 10 December 1985.

The resting place for Diego Voci is in Neuhof, Germany. On Helga’s periodic visits she shares her thoughts with both Diego and her mother beside him.

Diego Voci; “COMPOSITION A LA PLAGE” #261-4467 oil on canvas 60x50cm

Christine Khan, (owner of “Composition a La Plage“) shares words on her DIEGO Collection:

“Each piece either been given to me as a gift or a purchase. There is a story behind each one. Each piece is so different & unique. I live with them. They each have a certain place in my home. No reason to sell. DIEGO was intelligent, interesting, engaged in mind discussions, and had a sense of humor. Prior to my representing Diego for 10 years, I had a friendship with Helga & Diego. Diego wanted to paint what he liked.”

“COMPOSITION A LA PLAGE” is an example of a surrealist work of art:

During our research on the title to this art work, we stumbled upon the heritage of Napoletan Fisherman. Here is a bit of history to Napoletan Fisherman;

“Masaniello (abbreviation of Tommaso Aniello; 1622 – 16 July 1647) was an Italian fisherman who became leader of the revolt against the rule of Habsburg Spain (refers to the history of Spain over the 16th and 17th centuries) in Naples in 1647. Masaniello was one of the most popular figures in Neapolitan tradition.”
