KEEP AN EYE OUT! A HIDDEN GEM AWAITS YOU

The Trial framed cleaned up

Diego Voci; The Trial 38″x30″ Framed, oil painting Private Collection

 

We (The Diego Voci Project Team) just learned that James Thomson, Diego Voci Collector, acquired “The Trial” by internationally collected artist, Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) from an online Goodwill auction.

James shares;

“I purchased another oil painting by Diego. The canvas measures (31 X 23 inches), framed (38 X 30 inches). On the back is Diego printed and below that in English, the title ” The Trial ” which I assume is the trial of the Apostle’s Peter and John with them in the painting stands the cripple that they cured who stood up with Peter and John to defend the Apostles before the threatening Jewish Council. The Council asked them “By what power or in whose name did you do this?””

 This painting title “The Trial” was during the time the DIEGO signature began on his works (ca. 1966).  Diego began an exclusive contract to NAFFOUJ Gallery. The frame is the style commonly used by Naffouj for DIEGO as well as other artists. The biography on the back was written by Joy Gibson before she married Jawdat Naffouj. Joy now resides in Canada. Our estimation is the work is around 1966. The historical interpretation certainly to fits what James Thomson wrote.

“FRIENDS” On The Wall & “FRIENDS” On The Couch

October 1972 Coops 36th Birthday

This October 1972 occasion was Coop Cooprider’s 36th birthday (on left).  The friends on the couch are Ingrid and Walter Nermerich, owners of “Alt Landstuhl Restaurant” in Landstuhl, Germany home of the famous Chateaubriand.

Friends” on the wall is an amazing work of art by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).  The painting was purchased from the private collection of Jawdat and Joy Naffouj, art dealers also in Alt, Landstuhl.  “Friends” has been on Coop and Patti’s walls as they moved around the world ever since.

Coopriders now own about 8 dozen or so Diego art paintings; several are earmarked for selection into a Major Museum Diego Retrospective once a generous benefactor comes forward.

SAME GIRL? LOOKS LIKE IT!

Ragazza Con Cappello and Girl with Black Hat

Ragazza Con Cappello (left)  and Girl with Black Hat (right) both by Diego Voci

Both Diego paintings bought in Stuttgart in the month of May 1975.  We know who owns the silver framed version “Girl with Black Hat” (50x60cm oil on canvas), Mary Trimmins.  Mary started the first website for internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci in 2008, here is the link: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818.html

But where is the girl in the gold frame? “Ragazza Con Cappello” (50x60cm oil on canvas), purchased by EDWARD DZANIS May 31, 1975.

Diego is known as “The Artist of a Thousand Faces”.  In this case it looks like 2 versions of the same beautiful lady.

Let us hear from you.
