#MUSES “Die Musen von Pernasus” by #DIEGO_VOCI

“Die Musen von Pernasus” by Antonio DIEGO_VOCI (1920-1985), 31.5 x 15.75 inches

These colorful #muses are a testament to Diego’s comment about women:

“A man look at woman… this is cerebral feeling. Venus is love god … who made her? In reality Venus never existed. I like for example fat woman … that’s the way I build Venus. Or I like the skinny woman … that’s the way I build Venus.” DIEGO #VOCI, 1974

Using glass paint on canvas, Diego did a series of experimental glass paintings. See more of Coop’s #DIEGO_VOCI collection: Art Collection from Cooprider Family Collection | Artwork Archive

#DIEGO COLLECTOR FOUND IN #CALIFORNIA

3 years ago, we the DIEGO VOCI PROJECT posted an exquisite artwork by Antonio DIEGO Voci asking “Where is it Now?” We heard nothing. So, I (Kami Cooprider) happened to see the Index Card which #Helga_Voci created to track #DIEGO’s sales over the years, shown below the true color image here: “Arlequin sur la Plage” by #DIEGO

Arlequin sur la Plage” by DIEGO_VOCI (161-433, 20 x 24 in. Overall size 26.25 x 30.25 in.)

I decided to search for the owner’s name on the card. Low and behold there was a man of the same name right nearby in Chula Vista, CA – just miles down the road from San Diego. Making a photocopy, I snail-mailed the images to Gene A. and gave him our DVP phone number! 2 days later the call came in. Gene was as surprised by our mail as we were to hear back from him. YES, he still owned this exquisite oil painting “Arlequin sur la Plage” and it graces Gene’s walls still today! And,he owns 2 more #DIEGO artworks!

Better still is the story Gene shared about how, while visiting with DIEGO, he noticed there was a trace of a figure on the wall on the left next to the #Harlequin:

So, Gene asked DIEGO to paint over it some before taking it home. Yet, here we are 40 years later and the figure is starting to slowly reappear according to Gene. The next day Gene sent an image of the back of the canvas – here you see it. DIEGO often painted over canvases and always said, You don’t ask yourself what day do you have the idea… it grows from yourself.” – DIEGO Quote from Victoria Williams article 1974.

3RD DIEGO BOOK IS COMING AUGUST 10TH!

“DIEGO AT WORK IN STUDIO”
We know very little about this photo of our YOUNG DIEGO or of the amazing painting he was in the midst of creating. The only identifying marks on the image from Helga’s Shoebox were “Clinoggia – Italy 66112”. We presume the photo was taken in the very late fifties or early sixties, perhaps in Italy

HUMOR CAPTURED FROM 1973

Marsha Largent Piper (daughter of Dr. Ogden Brown, collector of Diego Voci and once USA agent for Diego Voci) just sent the Diego Voci Project an image of herself with Diego during the 1973 Diego Voci Exhibition at the Broadmoor in Boulder, Colorado.  Marsha recalls laughing often with Diego.   

In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He experimented with Glass paint right in the Brown’s kitchen.  Diego cooked and painted with glass paint. Yes Diego had to “cook” the glass paint.

From Marsha’s collection here is a wild example by Diego:

Diego Voci; “Exotic Fishes” #668 Glass Paint on Linen 60 x 70 cm
