Diego Voci; “Lady with Fur” 

The exquisite #painting title “Lady with Fur” was originally owned by a Colonel (who has since passed away). This painting was seen in a run-down home. A neighbor to the run-down home, Cheryl Gossman, went over as people were throwing the contents of the home in the trash. Cheryl saw this painting “Lady with Fur” across the room and inquired about having the painting. The individuals clearing out the house said “sure”. This painting is one of about 4000 oil paintings internationally collected #artist #Diego Voci completed during his lifetime (1920-1985).

Now this painting is seen, viewed and admired each day. You too, may find a #Diego anywhere to own and enjoy. This is a truth amongst the collectors we have identified to date over 1000 Diego paintings and drawings we have cataloged in the Diego Voci Estate Archive.

We thank Cheryl for reaching out to us and for saving and sharing “Lady with Fur”.

Helga Voci recalls, “The buyer may have been a German Doctor.”  No name is on the index card.  Siegfred Dahms owner of Galerie Dahms said this about Diego;

“DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people.  They understand, they get excited about and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art.   The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immerse that people gradually acquire more and more of his work.  DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”

#MAX AND #DiegoVoci™PART TWO

Stephen and Wendy Max, #collectors of #DiegoVoci™ works of #art and past exclusive agent for Diego’s works in #Canada shares his personal experiences with #DiegoVoci™.

Diego’s paintings are wordless, eloquent and #joyous expressions of Diego, a man and an artist we have known”. …Stephen and Wendy Max December 1985

Suonatrice-di-linto June 1974 TV Guide and Diego Afn TV Guide

“In 1975, we visited Diego and Helga at their home to meet with Diego and consider purchasing additional #paintings.

Diego and Helga were living in #Schwetzingen, #Germany at the time. Diego’s home housed art in so many #mediums and #forms, the visit was enchanting and we appreciated an enjoyable afternoon with Diego and Helga and a great bottle of #wine. On that visit we purchased the “Madchen Mit Tuch” and while there, we noticed an uncompleted painting, on an #easel in Diego’s #studio which was to become Suonatrice di Linto (February 1975).

Wendy and I instantly became entranced with the unfinished work and developed an unshakable bond with the painting, we needed to have it. We were able to convince Diego to complete the painting for us. This was truly a privilege to have witnessed the creation and completion of this painting which we enjoy as a masterpiece today.”

WE ARE ON OUR WAY TO MAKING #DIEGO VOCI ( VOH-chee) … A #CELEBRITY!

DIEGO Dancing in Front of Fireplace he Sculpted FOR BLOG 2 DEC 2014

The world is infatuated with #celebrities.

But, don’t tell #DIEGO, we’re making him a #celebrity.  Diego said,

You want to make me something in the sky with wings…go ahead.

You want to make me famous…go ahead.  But, this is  not my life.” -1974

#Vincent_Van_Gogh whose works were rejected during the #artist’s troubled lifetime would have gladly traded places with Antonio DIEGO Voci who in his lifetime (1920 – 1985) sold thousands of #paintings.

In 1973, Siegfried Dahms owner of #Galerie Dahms on the prestigious #Wilhelmsstrasse in #Wiesbaden said,

We cannot get enough DIEGOs for our collectors. 

He is exactly the taste

of the #German people.”

 #Diego died at home December 10, 1985. Diego’s studio/residence was nearby to Galerie Dahms in Taunusstein where his widow #Helga #Voci still lives today.
