Scene Espagnolewas purchased through Diego’s home in June of 1976.

“During our tour in #Europe we spent many wonderful #vacations and traveled throughout #Spain. It was during these vacation trips we came to appreciate the vibrant #culture and #beauty of the #Spanish people. When we saw the painting “Scene Espagnole” we understood immediately that it reflected our own feelings of the beauty of #Spain.

 Diego’s ability to articulate the #life of people through his #art is unparalleled.

We not only have our own memories of Spain, we appreciate a constant visual reminder of these memories through this #painting and Diego’s art. It was 1976 during our final visit to #Diego’s home in #Schwetzingen we instantly developed a deep appreciation for “Scene Espagnole”. We had by this time, in preparation for our repatriation, converted all of our funds to #Canadian #Dollars and transferred our finances to #Edmonton. Diego’s extraordinary insight and sensitivity focused like a laser beam on our situation and our attraction to this painting. Understanding this, Diego gave us the painting without deposit, simply on our promise we would pay for it on our return to #Canada.

When a few years later I had the opportunity to discuss his trust in me with this painting, I asked Diego what he would do if I hadn’t paid him as I promised, to which he immediately replied, in his playful good natured way  “I would have come to Canada and killed you”.

JUMP ON BOARD THE #DIEGOVOCI™ TIME MACHINE……1981

#StephenMax, #DiegoVoci™  #Canadian Representative, staged an exhibition of #DiegoVoci™ works of art at the Griesbach Officers Club in #Edmonton.  A #newspaper article captured the exhibition “#PICASSO MEETS #ELGRECO?”.   After the exhibition, many conversations between Diego and Stephen Max took place and the concept of promoting Diego’s works in #Canada was formed.

The agreement came together to consign DiegoVoci™ works of art while preparations of the launch of #GoldCrest Galleries LTD was established.

Stephen Max arranged more exhibits, in Helga’s words…

“Diego and I attended exhibitions of DiegoVoci™ works of art in Canada, 1981. One was the Goldcrest Galleries Ltd., in Columbus Center Toronto. The other was the Van Zoolingen Galleries in Edmonton.”

ANOTHER #SURREALISM MASTERPIECE BY #DIEGOVOCI

This dramatic “Green Horse”, surrealistic in nature oil painting is owned by Stephen and Wendy Max in Edmonton, Canada. The depth in the “Green Horse” is as effective as wearing 3-D glasses.  Stephen and Wendy’s collection of Diego Voci artwork began in the late sixties, and after all these years still numbers 27 pieces. Large numbers of Diego works per collector is not uncommon especially in Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Italy and USA.
