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.
As the internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) #traveled the world he constantly took photos in his mind to replicate on canvas at some later date. This little gem #painting of a #landscape is an orphan without title year, or size…
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.
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.*
Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) creates an illusion of distance, making the viewer peer through an arch or window to see his faraway subject. Here are 2 examples (above) from 1976 and 1979.
A line in Don McClean’s haunting song about Vincent #VanGogh is “Weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist’s loving hand”. The “weathered faces” of people being deported likewise inspired Diego’s hand with brush to canvas.

After a seven year search, The Diego Voci Project recently received an email from a Diego Voci art collector that owns 9 originals. Here are a few words Stan Wilcox shares about his experience with collecting Diego Voci works of art:
“Dear Coop, the repetitive hoarding phenomenon pattern we hear about is mysterious, but no surprise given the fact that his (Diego Voci) work speaks to the soul and you couldn’t settle for just one! My wife and I were fortunate to have met the #master (Diego Voci) with an invite to his home in #Wiesbaden Taunusstein for #wine, #cheese, #piano music and a pen and ink sketch created for us by Diego unfolding before our very eyes that I now have displayed in my sitting room that is a scene that I believe is poking fun at #Dali.”
Here is one of paintings from the Wilcox collection of Diego’s. This piece title “Femme fille en train de faine ses devoirs” is an oil of a young girl at her desk doing her homework. On the back of the canvas is numbered #11802-111.
We thank Stan Wilcox for sharing his story and one of his Diego Voci paintings with us with the rest of the Diego Voci collectors. One by one we are locating all of Diego’s works of art to archive with the Diego Voci Estate. Enter Diego Voci on Google, click images on bar at top to see the Google gallery of Diego Voci works.
Thank you and many blessings for a Happy Thanksgiving from the Diego Voci Project!
Coop Cooprider has 4 Aldo Paolucci paintings, also from Naffouj, 2 nudes and 2 abstract.
It is amazing the influence Jawdat Naffouj had on so many collectors of art. He still has the little gallery in the Altstadt of Landstuhl, Germany. Its 50 years since we bought our first painting from him and Joy.
This still is from a video we shot in 2012. He was showing me his contract with DiegoVoci™.
