The lesson learned Dear Reader! Keep your eyes open, for you also may find a cubistic masterwork by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (920-9185).
This Diego Voci example of cubism is museum worthy. The new owner states:
“We own two Diego Voci paintings. We are so happy that this project was started because we could never find any information on who our “Diego” was! We love our paintings and are not interested in selling. We were wondering if you (DVP) were interested in having photos of them for the projects’ catalogue? Please let us know. Thank you, Caroline & John”
Diego Voci; “Nude in Yellow” 48″x36″ oil on canvas
$20,000 REWARD for this stolen masterwork by internationally collected artist Antonio DIEGO VOCI (VOH-chee) 1920-1985!
In 1973 Dr. Ogden Brown, an addicted Diego Voci collector, obtained the phenomenal “NUDE IN YELLOW” 48″ x 36″ directly from Diego Voci. About 1974, this marvelous painting strangely disappeared in a move of the Brown family from one home to another in Colorado. They saw “NUDE IN YELLOW” go into the moving truck. The painting was missing when the truck was unloaded and hasn’t been seen since.
Diego Voci explored all genres. Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) inspired by the greatest masters from #Rafael and #Leonardo explored all artistic genres while remaining distinctively recognizable as works by Diego Voci.

#DIEGO VOCI #Faces- Where are they now? Faded Polaroids found by Helga in a shoebox.
#Helga Voci, #Diego’s widow, has provided the DVP a plethora of Index Cards she kept since the mid 70’s. Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, suggested inventory records of the Diego aficionados such as Stephen Max and his wife Wendy. They represented Diego exclusively in Canada from 1980 until 1985 the year Diego passed.
Above on the left is “Suonatrice di linto” is one of 20 plus DIEGO artworks owned by Stephen and Wendy Max, in Edmonton, Albert, Canada. We thank them for their volunteer efforts made to increase awareness and value of the great body of artwork created by Antonio DIEGO Voci (1920-1985) and promoting DIEGO on Social Media.

Often it was said “Diego” has too many styles. Collectors of the works of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) own and treasure works in several “facets” ranging from realism, cubism, fauve, impressionism, and yes surrealism, and in which Diego excelled.
The Diego Voci Estate has just discovered lost images of about a dozen wonderful surrealistic examples of Diego’s exceptional talent which we will share with you over the next few weeks. If you know an owner, contact us at email@example.com.

“The Artist of a Thousand Faces” Antonio Diego #Voci (1920-1985) internationally collected artist is mostly referred to as “Diego”. Part Two, much like Part One, reflects the exquisite mastery of Diego’s versatility. Unknown to many Diego #aficionados he created what appear to be ‘portraits’ of real people who posed – Diego actually did most from memory. Diego’s figurative #art includes the clear precision of the detailed features in faces shown in Part One of the “FACES SERIES” (click on link at bottom of post).
Having traveled throughout Europe and Morocco, Diego was also inspired by the indigenous people – again creating all from memory. Children were also depicted in various styles by Diego. Helga Voci, Diego’s widow, kept #Polaroids. The faded and definitely not as vivid as what you may have on your walls (or wish to have on your walls?) Diego loved life and lived to paint. In his words,
“I must to paint. To me is important the white canvas. On the canvas I begin again. This is my life.”
Many more faces to come – and not only here – we have many more social media outlets like YouTube, #Pinterest, Facebook, and more! Search GOOGLE “Diego Voci Project”, you’ll find Diego’s bio on Wikipedia, too. Written by Coop #Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian, since 1973, you’ll be amazed at Diego and his art! The DVP has archived more than 1,000 of his works. A couple more 1,000 to go! Send us your Diego art – or let someone you know that owns a “Diego” to contact us on our
When artists #GeorgeBraque, #Picasso, and #JuanGris created #cubistic #paintings it was often difficult even to the trained eye to identify which artist did the work. When Antonio #DIEGO Voci ventured into his cubistic mode he strived to be distinctively DIEGO.
Here are examples:
“Le Concert de Harlequins” 1970, 32″ x 23 ¾” , oil on canvas, signed “DIEGO” Private Collection
“Spanish Table“, 27 2/5″ x 19 ¾”, mixed on paper, Signed “DIEGO” Private Collection
“Ink on Paper“, 1985, Signed “DIEGO”
“Ink on Paper” is an important example historically because it was one of the very last works before DIEGO transitioned 3 days later. DIEGO drew this especially for what became his last exhibition, an open house at his residence the first week of December 1985. DIEGO remained upstairs in bed, too ill to personally attend.
“Cubism“, Signed “DIEGO” top Left hand corner, Private Collection (DIEGO was very generous giving away his art to people he was close to, for example this gift of a cubistic painting to Helga Voci’s sister.)
“Nude Cubism“, 1971, 31 ¾” x 23 ½”, oil on canvas, Signed “DIEGO” Private Collection
