#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

Antonio DIEGO_VOCI at work, 1970’s.

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 COLLECTOR FOUND IN #CALIFORNIA

3 years ago, we the DIEGO VOCI PROJECT posted an exquisite artwork by Antonio DIEGO Voci asking “Where is it Now?” We heard nothing. So, I (Kami Cooprider) happened to see the Index Card which #Helga_Voci created to track #DIEGO’s sales over the years, shown below the true color image here: “Arlequin sur la Plage” by #DIEGO

Arlequin sur la Plage” by DIEGO_VOCI (161-433, 20 x 24 in. Overall size 26.25 x 30.25 in.)

I decided to search for the owner’s name on the card. Low and behold there was a man of the same name right nearby in Chula Vista, CA – just miles down the road from San Diego. Making a photocopy, I snail-mailed the images to Gene A. and gave him our DVP phone number! 2 days later the call came in. Gene was as surprised by our mail as we were to hear back from him. YES, he still owned this exquisite oil painting “Arlequin sur la Plage” and it graces Gene’s walls still today! And,he owns 2 more #DIEGO artworks!

Better still is the story Gene shared about how, while visiting with DIEGO, he noticed there was a trace of a figure on the wall on the left next to the #Harlequin:

So, Gene asked DIEGO to paint over it some before taking it home. Yet, here we are 40 years later and the figure is starting to slowly reappear according to Gene. The next day Gene sent an image of the back of the canvas – here you see it. DIEGO often painted over canvases and always said, You don’t ask yourself what day do you have the idea… it grows from yourself.” – DIEGO Quote from Victoria Williams article 1974.

#Arlequin Sur La Plage by #DIEGO_VOCI (161-433 20 x 24 in. Overall size 26.25 x 30.25 in.)

We’ll be featuring another of Gene’s DIEGO artworks soon! Keep an eye out for more . . .

#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
