WHO OWNS THIS PAINTING NOW?

Jeune Fille en Blanc #641-030 80x60cm oil on canvas

Diego Voci; “Jeune Fille en Blanc” #641-030 oil on canvas 80x60cm 

“Jeune Fille en Blanc” was purchased back in 1974 by Diego Voci Historian, Coop Cooprider in Diego’s studio when Coop was helping Diego become better known. Diego opened up his studio to visitors and many experienced first hand the “magnetism” of Diego, so captivated by his art and his persona that most walked out with a painting or two in hand. Coop was no exception.

Throughout the years, Coop and his family have traveled and moved between Europe and United States, and along the way this painting has gone missing.

This unique cubistic/surrealist art work takes on the divide between two different styles. Where is the line between the two?

ALESSANDRA, DAUGHTER TO DIEGO VOCI, REMEMBERS

“When you cannot use words to let people know you what mean, use colors and draw a picture” words by Diego Voci

Alessandra & LADY as a puppy (2)

Alessandra and Lady (Diego’s favorite dog)

Alessandra shares… “I can remember when daddy was drawing when I was child. When daddy was working I often was at his side and watched him how a new painting was born. He was smoking his cigarettes and tell me stories. I learned a lot of different techniques on how to draw a picture. When daddy got a painting in his mind, he was in his own world. I learned a lot of what Art can be. He once said to me “when you cannot use words to let people know what you mean, use colors and draw a picture”. He was my personal philosopher, that was my childhood.”

Alessandra, adored by Diego, gave him enrichment of life, until lung cancer took him from her at her age 11.

CARICATURE ART IS AN ART FORM

A picture is worth a thousand words”.

Caricature art can be funny. Caricature art can be biting. Caricature art can be influential.

This exceptional caricature artist is generously rewarded by New Yorker Magazine for making President Trump look foolish; talented art that effectively reflects the magazine’s political bias. The extreme can become a turn-off too many.

New Yorker and Diego's Father in Law image

Although Diego avoided politics, his caricatures were exceptional.
Diego used caricature art not only to get quick money, but moreover to study people’s faces that would eventually appear by brush and paint on canvas.*

FIRSTIMER PREPARES FOR #DELMAR #RACETRACK OPENING DAY

Jeune Fille avec Chapeau #1091-997 Milan Krofh 80x60cm

Diego and Del Mar never met each other. Not really. But the hat would qualify for opening day at Del Mar Racetrack. Diego rarely used a model, relying on memory. This painting by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) was purchased in Heidelberg, Germany on June 10, 1979 by Milan H. Krofh.

Where is Milan Krofh now? Where is this Diego painting today? We are searching the world to find and catalog all of some 4,000 oil paintings by Diego (Some are signed VOCI in his early years).
