#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 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.

#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

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH WITH DIEGO VOCI

In honor of the last few days celebrating Black History Month, the Diego Voci Project presents number 7 in the “COLORBLIND SERES” with “Jeune fille Avec Port Jaune”. An exquisite portrait of an African “Young Girl with a Yellow Pot” acquired by Captain Gene Page in 1974 from Antonio DIEGO Voci  at Patch Barracks in Stuttgart, Germany.

Captain Page had very good taste! Appreciate the bold color contrast and the folds in the fabric. Where is this painting today? We would like to know.

The image comes from hundreds of index cards, which Helga, Diego’s widow kept to document Diego sales. Faded by time the old photos lost their OOMPF. Shown here is the index card and photo, next to what the painting may have looked like as originally envisioned by Diego. Stephen Max, Producer for the DVP, brought the beautiful young African girl in the painting back to life.

#PHOTOGRAPHS – A PEEK INTO DIEGO VOCI’s #ART #STUDIO

Since 2009, when the Diego Voci Project began with a find on the internet at ARTIFACTCOLLECTORS.com thanks to Mary Trimmins and a handful of Diego aficionados, the DVP has archived more than 1,000 artworks by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) (VOH-chee). The DVP, our all volunteer group, purpose is to increase the awareness and the value of the great body of artwork created by DIEGO! We locate, collect and catalog Diego’s works as the only officially authorized DIEGO VOCI ARCHIVE by Helga Voci, Diego’s widow and sole owner of the DIEGO VOCI ESTATE.

 

Gasthaus Scene Large Oil in Studio Sold thru DAHMS No Info

#DIEGO VOCI painted this large “Gasthaus” scene in his #studio in Taunusstein, Germany. Shown here the large oil painting is unframed.

 

Shown above is one of the many faded #photographs taken with the old fashioned camera that used film! The DVP has been featuring many of them, thanks to Helga who located and sent us a box of Index Cards she started keeping in the mid 1970’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, had suggested ‘somehow tracking to whom the DIEGOs were sold‘. Since 2009, the DVP has been searching the world for more “LOST DIEGO ARTWORKS”. Some of Helga’s cards have images, but the majority do not.

HELP THE DIEGO VOCI PROJECT FIND MORE OF THE #MASTER DIEGOs ART!

Helga used both polaroids and film to catalog DIEGO’s works.  Shown below is the same DIEGO “Gasthaus” scene once it had been framed. Note how the FLASH however obliterates the female figure to the right. When taking images of your Diego art, note that the DVP is best suited to archive DIEGO’s artworks with reproducible (min. 300 dpi) straight-on squared images taken without a flash. Sometimes daylight is great too if not too bright! Front and back of artworks are preferred. Include any provenance you have!
