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.

Help us find the hidden gem works of art by Diego Voci. Email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com

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

La Muse et Le Poet, and a Box of old Polaroid Images

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci (1920-85), sent the Diego Voci Project Team a box of old faded polaroid images of oil paintings by Diego.   Sifting thru hundreds, we came across this index card with the image of “La Muse et Le Poet”, the number of the painting, dimensions, year of purchase and the collector who purchased.

The team recognized the name as one of Diego’s collectors, The Halsavers wrote an excerpt on their Diego Voci collection:

We have about 10 Diego’s works and treasure them.  In fact, will still have the receipts for most all.  We visited him in his home and he has joined us for a bottle of wine at ours in Stuttgart in the mid-70’s.  Christine Khan, who displayed Diego’s works in her Wiesbaden studio, joined us maybe a half dozen times, too.  We have a folder of Diego’s promotional materials and ads from various handouts as well as newspaper articles about him.  His house had a dozen or more New Mexico magazines scattered about and as we had moved from New Mexico to Stuttgart, we talked of his time there and how we loved his realistic pastels of Indians that we bought.  We are glad that you have taken the initiative to honor Diego works on this site.  

The Diego Voci Project Team is presently cataloging all of Diego Voci’s works of art into the Diego Voci Estate Archive.

This is a message to the Halsavers and others to send the Diego Voci Project Team images of your Diego works.  Visit www.diegovociproject.com or email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com.  We are excited to receive your images.  Google “Diego Voci”, and click Images. Amazing!

Gauguin and Diego landscapes

If you thought it was the bottom one you would not be alone.  The top painting that sold on February 28, 2017 for $25 million dollars at Christie’s in London is not the typical bold style Gauguin is known for (Google “Gauguin images“).

The lower painting is by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) from the private collection of Patti and Coop Cooprider.  Google has selected a few dozen of Diego Voci art works for display in their gallery of Diego Voci Images.  Google “Diego Voci” and click “Images”.

“I am always learning, always painting, to fill a need… to express.”  Diego’s exact words.  We want and need more quotes!

First, thanks to Mara, Lars and Stephen for your comments that inspired by the life and art of our hero, Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).

Lars, we are so grateful you found Artifact Collector’s (see link http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page17.html#115141 ) and shared your story with the history your parents have in collecting Diego Voci’s works of art.


Lars, and everyone who knew Diego, we would like to know much more about your personal experiences with Diego every detail to include in the Diego Voci Archive™.  One thing we treasure is the exact words as Diego would express his thoughts from the mundane to the worldly view of the great philosophers; everything in his broken Italian accented English. We are gathering such quotes to publish on Wikiquotes.


What would Diego say when he was smoking a cigarette? (2 packs a day, unfiltered)

Would Diego say anything after a first sip of wine?

What would Diego say when he was frustrated with a painting?  What would he do? Would he stop and say something or did he gesture a frustration?

What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when a potential collector came thru the door?

What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when Diego put down his paint brush and knew a painting was done?

What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when he sold a painting?

What would Diego say over and over and over again to Alessandra?

Helga, what slipped thru Diego’s voice to keep you calm, “quote” in his words?
