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

#COLORBLIND DIEGO ART SERIES 5

In the same spirit of the previous “Ebony and Ivory” post COLORBLIND SERIES 4 #COLORBLIND DIEGO ART SERIES 5

We now present a black and white LINOCUT experiment by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).


Diego was always experimenting, glass paint, sand paint, collage, and here LINOCUT. As an example of his artistic genius, I’d rate this at best a “C” plus, but not bad for the first time carving piece of linoleum. The hard part is to think in reverse: what you carve away becomes the white, and what’s left of the lino surface covered with ink and pressed to paper becomes the black.

AN #EXCITING #SURPRISE JUST ARRIVED!

Diego Voci; “Stillife with Green Bottle” #484 oil on canvas ca. 1966-67

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”

Yes. The Diego Voci Project is delighted to include your works into the official Diego Voci Archive with the Diego Voci Estate. To view more cubistic works by Diego click here: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/cubism-diegovocitm/

#ESCAPE FROM #REALITY

There is a great beauty to be found in Diego’s subjects.

Words by Stephen Max; “Diego’s artwork reminds us of the simple human love of a mother for a child, of the nurturing gaze of all mothers, and the comfort they bring. We see the best of ourselves in them. His impossibly gorgeous execution of  Suonatrice di Linto was completed while living in Schwetzingen Germany in 1975  and his focus was upon the beauty of the human spirit.
Diego painted with immense beauty and grace, executing his work with painstaking care and attention to detail. Each of his brushstrokes was an act of love, and little by little, something breathtakingly beautiful came into formation. Overall a sense of comfort and peace soothe the onlooker liberating the stress embodied in everyday life. The beauty and tenderness of her face, that portrait of love and softness, encompasses every detail of this masterpiece.
In February 1975 we were entertained by Helga and Diego in their Schwetzingen home (near Heidelberg Germany).  After enjoying an exceptional wine, reacquainting ourselves with Helga, and meeting Diego for the first time, we observed this unfinished painting on an easel in his studio. The exceptional beauty and serenity of the painting could be easily visualized in its finished state and we simply had to have it. Following a good natured and animated dialogue, Diego agreed to complete the painting exclusively for us. We re-visited two weeks later for the purchase of this masterpiece and have enjoyed Suonatrice di Linto placed in a prominent location in our home ever since.”
The completed Masterpiece.

DIEGO & NAFFOUJ IN A TIME MACHINE

Destination Urbino, Italy! Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985), in 1978 journeyed to Urbino, the birthplace of RAPHAEL 500 years ago!!!  https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2020/04/11/raphael-500th-death-anniversary/

The goal was be immersed in the aura of centuries of creative genius.  Diego did at least 9 high quality paper lithographs on stone.  One is “Le Couple” chosen now to be “considered” for the 3rd book about Diego to be published by Stephen Max titled “Artist of a Thousand Faces”.  ( A worldwide search is in progress to find unique faces by Diego for his 100th Anniversary) https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2020/04/15/planning-stages-and-you-can-be-featured/

Diego Voci; “Le Couple” Tempera with Gold Leaf 65 x 65cm

Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, has a few of “Le Couple” available https://www.diegovociproject.com/product-page/title-le-couple.  The original was purchased for the Cooprider Family Collection https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/cooprider-family-collection/collections

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

A HALF MILLION BECOMES A “BLIET” IN HISTORY AND A “BREEN”, TOO

Cartoonists Bliet & Breen nail it, without words or names telling the story of two days in history.

Diego’s widow, Helga Voci, living in Germany remembers that Diego thought of himself as a superior cartoonist. Helga treasures the one Diego did of her Dentist father, https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-histor…/Page2.html… ; one of the few known to exist out of thousands.
