"VOCI" VS. "DIEGO" SIGNATURE

Even though called “Diego“, until 1965 he signed his works of art some form of “Voci“. See signature gallery below and on Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia:

From 1962 thru 1965 Diego was represented at the prestigious Schlossgalerie (see below) and an image of a 1965 ad from a Zurich newspaper. He began signing “Diego” in 1966.

THE #JOURNEY OF "L'ARLEQUIN TRISTE" BY #DIEGO UNFOLDED

Diego Voci; “L’Arlequin Triste” oil on canvas #5812-174

This painting L’Arlequin Triste by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) was wrapped in packaging for 40 years (owned by the original owner of Talbert’s Kleine Galeria in Tacoma, WA.).

Days ago… this painting L’Arlequin Triste arrived to its new owner, packing material removed and looks as if DIEGO had just finished painting this piece.

From the archives of Helga Voci, she shares her words her travels with Diego during the 1980’s to the United States. “On that trip in 1980 we went to N.Y. and Philadelphia where Diego has family still today. We also went to Tacoma, Washington, where Diego had an exhibit in a gallery called – Talbert`s Kleine Galerie in Gig Harbor, WA. Then on to San Francisco, New Orleans, Albuquerque. And again we drove to Colorado Springs. Along the way, we visited with many American friends we had met in Germany. At several places, we had private shows. We both liked the United States very much.” https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page2.html#44298

“I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIS (DIEGO’S) PAINTINGS!”

Diego Voci; Red Boat oil on canvas

Diego Collector; Norm Hershfield shares his own personal experience with how he collected Diego artworks;

I never really met Diego. I fell in love with his (Diego) paintings, when I saw them at Dino’s Restaurent (a favorite restaurant of Diego Voci’s Art Historian, Coop Cooprider) and the Ramsteiner Hof. I also frequented Herr Dahm’s Gallery in Wiesbaden for many years. I bought mine (Diego paintings) from the agent (Christine Khan) who sold them at the Ramstein Officer’s Club and at some of the bazaars.”

#BTS (BEHIND THE SCENES)

Diego Voci; A Moment of Reflection in his Studio

An extraordinary video created by Stephen Max (volunteer for The Diego Voci Project). Go behind the scenes in Antonio Diego Voci’s (VOH-chee 1920-1985) studio. Each day when Diego painted was always a mystery as to what he would create because his skills and talents were outside the bounds of one style.

“Each movement had its great masters, but there are very few who could create art unconfined by a single style like Diego.” – Christopher Voci.

A #MEMORY OF #JFK & #ARTIST DIEGO VOCI

Margaret Carrow shares memories of her Aunt’s memories of how she collected her two internationally collected artist Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) paintings.

Margaret shares;

My Aunt lived most of her life in Europe working for the Air Force as an administrator of the Air Force schools, in Germany, France and Spain. She is 93 (in 2012) years old and I have moved her back to the states,along with her personal possessions including two of her paintings.She talked about the artist she knew while she was in Germany. The two oil paintings by Diego are signed on the front and the back. I have taken pictures of them and have included them with this letter. One of the paintings needs some repairs, and I didn’t know how I should have this done. My Aunt is living in a retirement home, and wanted her paintings to be with her. She told me that Diego was working on a painting for President Kennedy when she first met Diego.”
