#DIEGO’S LAST HOURS – 33 YEARS AGO

Diego's last art work & smoking

That persistent urge to #draw that possessed #Diego from a young child carried into Diego’s last hours. The second weekend of December there was an open house in Diego’s home and studio; he was too weak to attend.  Yet he found the strength to draw one more piece for a door prize, his last work of art for the public, a cubist, ink drawing; followed by a small pencil sketch for Helga.

Diego, who smoked 40 cigarettes a day, succumbed to lung cancer 10 December 1985.

The resting place for Diego Voci is in Neuhof, Germany. On Helga’s periodic visits she shares her thoughts with both Diego and her mother beside him.
