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.
“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.

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.
