These colorful #muses are a testament to Diego’s comment about women:
“A man look at woman… this is cerebral feeling. Venus is love god … who made her? In reality Venus never existed. I like for example fat woman … that’s the way I build Venus. Or I like the skinny woman … that’s the way I build Venus.” DIEGO #VOCI, 1974

Tony and Stacie Westbrook share their #heartfelt #story of their Diego Voci painting title “Petit Village de Montague” and how this #painting holds many years of memories for them.
In Tony’s words:
My wife and I purchased this piece while living in Germany and serving with the US military around 1982. We seem to recall that we purchased it at an art show probably held at the Officers Club in either Stuttgart or Heidelberg. We were living in Heilbronn at the time. Over the years we have collected many pieces of art – originals and limited prints – yet this piece (Petit Village de Montague) remains our absolute favorite. It is a constant reminder of our time in Europe and what we took on as a very young married couple. I am happy to say that after 37 years we are still very happily married and that this piece always gets the most prominent spot in the house. It has been all over the United States and has been enjoyed by countless numbers of our friends. Its simplicity, warmth, and mixture of color/contrast make it a wonderful piece to gaze at and enjoy for a lifetime. This painting is one of my most prized processions and I will never part with it.
“Petit Village de Montague” as painted by Diego, represented all that we loved about out time in Europe while allowing our imagination to constantly explore who lived in village, where the village was, what the families experienced, endured, and enjoyed about their town. The painting just brought forth positive feelings and thoughts which is what drew us to it.
This is one example of stories we receive from collectors of Diego Voci’s work of art. The Diego Voci Estate dreams of one day to find a generous benefactor to sponsor a major museum exhibition… in the meantime take a tour of Diego’s virtual museum: https://youtu.be/GG5Jl-2FuXM
