Christine Khan, (owner of “Composition a La Plage“) shares words on her DIEGO Collection:
“Each piece either been given to me as a gift or a purchase. There is a story behind each one. Each piece is so different & unique. I live with them. They each have a certain place in my home. No reason to sell. DIEGO was intelligent, interesting, engaged in mind discussions, and had a sense of humor. Prior to my representing Diego for 10 years, I had a friendship with Helga & Diego. Diego wanted to paint what he liked.”
“COMPOSITION A LA PLAGE” is an example of a surrealist work of art:

“Hallo again, I send you a few pictures of my new little house with the walls full of Diego’s paintings…”
Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, sent snapshots of her new “Abode” (a downsized dwelling) which is located behind their original Taunusstein home / studio they purchased in 1976.
“Helga lived with Diego’s ghost speaking to her from the canvases covering the walls of their German home where Diego had his studio. Diego paintings would stay on those walls and remain in a kind of time capsule.” Written by Chris Voci, grand-nephew of Diego Voci
Helga Voci kept possession of her treasured Diego hand painted “Kabinett“ shown below.
And three original works by Diego (highlighted below) that Helga cherishes each day. From the left; Kunstler und Sein Model (Self Portrait of Diego), La Familie, and Painter & Model.

The world and all its’ people were players on DIEGO Voci’s stage.
DIEGO’s living spirit is contained in framed canvases and muraled on interior walls.
A large wall mural painted by #DIEGO still lives today at the original VOCI Family (pronounced VOH-chee) home, near Wiesbaden (Germany) where DIEGO’s widow, Helga Voci, lives today and where DIEGO lived and painted until his death on December 10, 1985.
The stories that live in DIEGO’s mind were expressed through his works of art. What stories do you recall of DIEGO? Please email your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may not know when DIEGO saw you, but be sure in his mind, you were auditioning for some future performance DIEGO would direct with his magical brush on canvas.
