Memories of Diego Voci by Widow Helga

The Diego Voci Project is gathering “everyday moments” of Diego.

We posted a series of questions on Artifact Collectors to help us learn more about Diego.  http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818/Page17.html#115141

Helga Voci in Germany, responded.  She is the widow of internationally collected artist Diego Voci (1920-85).  Helga shares with us her behind the scenes life with Diego.

What would Diego say when he was smoking a cigarette? (2 packs a day, unfiltered)
“Diego said never anything when he smoked, he enjoyed his cigarettes, and he only got mad when me or somebody else would criticize for smoking so much. He smoked all over, in the house, in the car, at a friends’ house.”

Would Diego say anything after a first sip of wine? “Wine was fine for him, but he would never drink more than 1 or 2 glasses, after dinner only espresso and water.”

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?  “When Diego was frustrated with a painting he would put it aside and finish it later.”

What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when a potential collector came thru the door?  “Diego was always friendly and very pleased when somebody would come through the door, a customer or just friend, he always liked to have guests in the house, we always said-we have an open house.”

What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when Diego put down his paint brush and knew a painting was done?  “When a painting was done, he would put it away and it did not interest him anymore, he was only interested in a white canvas, so he could start again.”

What were the first words out of Diego’s mouth when he sold a painting?  “Diego did not get so much excited when he sold a painting, he knew he needed the money to pay the bills, but money did not really interest him, he wanted a good life, nice Restaurants, Holidays, good Hotels, pay his bills, the house, etc.  But he never was interested to shevel money, he did not care, as long as I had a comfortable life and Alessandra had everything she needed, everything was fine.”

What would Diego say over and over and over again to Alessandra?  “He always would say to Alessandra “Pallina mia” (little ball), he loved her very much, he would go to Italy once a year and buy beautiful dresses, coats and shoes in expensive boutiques for her, this was his biggest pleasure, he would buy everything what she wanted.”

Helga, what slipped into Diego’s voice to keep you calm, “quote” in his words? “To me he would say: Tutto bene (everything all right), non aver paura (don`t worry), and stai calma (be quiet, there are no problems).”

You can read a bit more on Antonio Diego Voci Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#First_marriage

George Roberts, shares his story about how he acquired this Diego work of art:

“We have a “nude” painting by Diego that was purchased at the Patch Barracks Officers Club in Germany in the late 1960’s from an American female who told us that this was a painting of Diego’s first wife. We paid $250.00 for the painting which was a lot of money in those days. We did not meet Diego. The painting is oil on canvas and measures approx.31” x 21” in the original frame. There is no title on the back of the canvas however a number 1697-9.” (The number on the back of the canvas represents the timing of the painting was complete)

See here images of Josiane (taken in the 1960’s) to compare with the Diego painting owned by George Roberts.

LOST #DIEGO PAINTING…WHERE IS IT?

Helga #Voci, widow to Diego Voci, has a shoebox with old photos of paintings done by Diego but many do not have names of owners on them… so the whereabouts are unknown. 

This is one of the images of a Diego #cubistic painting that came from Helga’s shoebox… size and title are unknown:

46 Lost Shoebox Revised S.Max 17 MAR 2015

Notice the rider appears to be strumming a base fiddle that forms into the rider’s left leg as he straddles his flying horse.  And if you look at the eye of the bull, he’s thinking “What the heck is going on here?”  This story-filled #painting leaves you with many interpretations.  Most important is to find its owner and its trail of history.
