“When I saw my first Diego I was taken by the skill and application of colours. My first purchased painting was titled “Impressions of Nuremberg” done in brown tones with lots of gold leaf on most of the spires of the buildings. The way it reflected sunlight was jaw dropping. I decided to track down this Artist. I went online in search of other works and found “The Diego Voci Project ” site and was mesmerized by the array of beautiful paintings in various styles and media offered for sale. This is how I communicated with Helga and through many emails arranged to purchase what I thought were still some exceptional works by Diego. I was so taken by Diego’s gifted talent and learned from Helga that her husband worked rapidly on each piece of art and from memory often using his imagination to the fullest. So now I’m the proud owner of approximately 40 oil on canvas, tempera and mixed media Diego’s.”

Examples above of unique “faces” by Diego (Antonio Diego Voci)!
“This is a unique face that never takes its eye off you, thinking what? The paint is unusually heavy, probably to disguise the painting formerly existing under this one; applied to wood, rather crudely, but, overall, I would place in the category of very special. Previously, it’s been noted as palette knife. I see no evidence of that, rather a prominent texture of an aggressive artist hand marking bold indentations with the opposite end of his amazing brush.” – Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Art Historian
The artist is internationally collected Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985)
This painting L’Arlequin Triste by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) was wrapped in packaging for 40 years (owned by the original owner of Talbert’s Kleine Galeria in Tacoma, WA.).
Days ago… this painting L’Arlequin Triste arrived to its new owner, packing material removed and looks as if DIEGO had just finished painting this piece.
From the archives of Helga Voci, she shares her words her travels with Diego during the 1980’s to the United States. “On that trip in 1980 we went to N.Y. and Philadelphia where Diego has family still today. We also went to Tacoma, Washington, where Diego had an exhibit in a gallery called – Talbert`s Kleine Galerie in Gig Harbor, WA. Then on to San Francisco, New Orleans, Albuquerque. And again we drove to Colorado Springs. Along the way, we visited with many American friends we had met in Germany. At several places, we had private shows. We both liked the United States very much.”https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page2.html#44298
