#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.

#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.
