An “excerpt” from the DIEGO VOCI NOVEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER that Stephen Max (one of the DVP’s volunteers) creates for all of Diego Voci’s collectors as a way to stay connected to the Legacy of Diego Voci.
At least the Amazonen existed in Diego’s dream which he transferred to this canvas “Die Amazonen”. The ancient parchment illustrated is only the second known tribute to the Amazon warrior woman by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Help us find this one.
Since late 2009, the Diego Voci Project has been in a worldwide search for the best of Diego Voci oil paintings. We just found this “VOCI” masterpiece in Lithuania for $3,500 complete door to door.
Diego Voci; Pferde auf Weide; 61x108cm oil on canvas, signed “Voci”
This is only the 4th “VOCI” discovered so far from the era of Diego’s connection to the Schlossgalerie (who served a wealthy horse owner clientele) in Zurich advertised as “Antonio Voci”, 1962-1965. It is the first that DVP could acquire for the day a generous benefactor is willing to finance a major Diego Museum Exhibition.

Here are the 3 other examples of “VOCI” paintings:
