KEEP AN EYE OUT! A HIDDEN GEM AWAITS YOU

The Trial framed cleaned up

Diego Voci; The Trial 38″x30″ Framed, oil painting Private Collection

 

We (The Diego Voci Project Team) just learned that James Thomson, Diego Voci Collector, acquired “The Trial” by internationally collected artist, Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) from an online Goodwill auction.

James shares;

“I purchased another oil painting by Diego. The canvas measures (31 X 23 inches), framed (38 X 30 inches). On the back is Diego printed and below that in English, the title ” The Trial ” which I assume is the trial of the Apostle’s Peter and John with them in the painting stands the cripple that they cured who stood up with Peter and John to defend the Apostles before the threatening Jewish Council. The Council asked them “By what power or in whose name did you do this?””

 This painting title “The Trial” was during the time the DIEGO signature began on his works (ca. 1966).  Diego began an exclusive contract to NAFFOUJ Gallery. The frame is the style commonly used by Naffouj for DIEGO as well as other artists. The biography on the back was written by Joy Gibson before she married Jawdat Naffouj. Joy now resides in Canada. Our estimation is the work is around 1966. The historical interpretation certainly to fits what James Thomson wrote.

“The Two Napoletan Fishermen” by Diego, owned by a Diego Collector who has a total of 10 Diego works in their collection. Back in the mid 1970’s, this collector visited Diego at Diego’s home studio for wine and conversation.

Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee) (1920-1985, born in Italy) connected with people all throughout his travels, capturing in his mind the faces of people and

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.”

#RARE TO #FIND!

Diego Caricature for L Italian Show Sextet (517x800)

Diego Voci; Italian Poster was for Theater in #Italy  (shared by Mario Voci, Diego’s Nephew)

It would be extremely rare to find a signed #caricature by internationally collected artist Antonio “Diego” Voci, even though, he did thousands. And if he did sign, it would be some form of Voci through 1965.

Caricatures were a source of Diego’s quick money in his early years. Diego was known to complete 20 drawings in one sitting of only a couple of hours. Helga Voci, (Diego’s widow) was his constant companion for 25 years (1960 until his death in 1985).
Helga notes Diego’s caricature experience in her biography “Sometime later I found out that DIEGO was doing caricatures in American Officers Clubs in #France, #Germany and later on also in #London and #Spain. He did wonderful caricatures, it took him only a few minutes to do each one and people were crazy about them, they stood in line waiting for their turn. He made a lot of money with this” https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page2.html#43754

“Der Mönch”, by Antonio DIEGO Voci, 70 x 60 cm, Oil on Canvas, #1151-397

Larry Martel in #Heidelberg, Germany bought “Der Mönch” on Thanksgiving Day. The monks seems to be saying to the artist, “Who is the guy, Diego? Are you sure I can trust him?” Diego’s wife Helga captured this Diego memory on canvas with her polaroid camera in 1975, since faded.
