Diego Voci; “COMPOSITION A LA PLAGE” #261-4467 oil on canvas 60x50cm
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.”
Although known as a figurative artist, Diego Voci was a Master of the Surreal.
Diego Voci; “Arlequin Sur La Plage” 50x60cm oil on canvas
The not-for-profit Diego Voci Project is searching for the lost paintings of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). This is only one of couple thousand “Diegos’” to be found. It was purchased by Eugene Alfaro April 4, 1977.
After a seven year search, The Diego Voci Project recently received an email from a Diego Voci art collector that owns 9 originals. Here are a few words Stan Wilcox shares about his experience with collecting Diego Voci works of art:
“Dear Coop, the repetitive hoarding phenomenon pattern we hear about is mysterious, but no surprise given the fact that his (Diego Voci) work speaks to the soul and you couldn’t settle for just one! My wife and I were fortunate to have met the #master (Diego Voci) with an invite to his home in #Wiesbaden Taunusstein for #wine, #cheese, #piano music and a pen and ink sketch created for us by Diego unfolding before our very eyes that I now have displayed in my sitting room that is a scene that I believe is poking fun at #Dali.”
Here is one of paintings from the Wilcox collection of Diego’s. This piece title “Femme fille en train de faine ses devoirs” is an oil of a young girl at her desk doing her homework. On the back of the canvas is numbered #11802-111.
We thank Stan Wilcox for sharing his story and one of his Diego Voci paintings with us with the rest of the Diego Voci collectors. One by one we are locating all of Diego’s works of art to archive with the Diego Voci Estate. Enter Diego Voci on Google, click images on bar at top to see the Google gallery of Diego Voci works.
Thank you and many blessings for a Happy Thanksgiving from the Diego Voci Project!
