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.
