Stephen Max shares gratitude to all who participated in the 100th Year Celebration of DIEGO. Collectors poured in from everywhere to share their works, a new publication created and inspirations to what grabbed each collector when they purchased their Diego works. Diego was about the people and all those who saw and met along his life. To purchase this celebratory book click here: https://www.blurb.com/books/10242206-diego
We hope you are all managing with your own personal situations. On our end, our team has made some adjustments – as just about everything has changed in our communities in the last 2 or 3 weeks. Many of us have been restricted from our regular day-day routine. …Stephen Max
Diego pictured here with Gigi-Bellati, and Lino-Storero at-La-Gondola 1977. Notice the painting on display in the upper right hand side of the image, titled: “Young Lady by the Window”. When this image was featured in Diego’s Blog on WordPress, it didn’t take long before we received an email from one of Diego’s Collectors. The note and image shown below from The Wilcox Family.
…I was stunned to see that we own the beautiful Young Lady by the Window which is depicted in your 1977 photo on the wall directly above Diego and Lino Storero. We won this watercolor and ink as a door prize at one of his home studio showings in #Wiesbaden Taunestein! Best Regards and Wishes… …Stan and Sibylle Wilcox
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.
“Der Mönch”, by Antonio DIEGO Voci, 70 x 60 cm, Oil on Canvas, #1151-397
Larry Martel in #Heidelberg, Germany bought “Der Mönch” on Thanksgiving Day. The monks seems to be saying to the artist, “Who is the guy, Diego? Are you sure I can trust him?”Diego’s wife Helga captured this Diego memory on canvas with her polaroid camera in 1975, since faded.
On this day, August 10, we celebrate the 98th birthday of internationally collected artist Antonio “Diego” Voci (1920-1985).
I am Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian. I first met Diego in late 1966. Patti and I bought our first Diego oil painting on layaway, our first of many. We were and remain addicted https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818/Page7.html#98597. In 1973-74, I volunteered for a year to help Diego become better known. One of those efforts was the 3-page biography in the May 1974 issue of the AFNTV Guide by my ghost writer Victoria Williams.
