Diego VociAHAH! Kami Cooprider here! I came in this afternoon and saw this great post. It looked familiar. Voila! Carole Hackenbeck and her hubby Claude own it. Here is what she wrote to us late last year: “Hi, my husband is number 8 of a 10 children family. Number 7, his brother Michel was a major in the Canadian air-force and was stationed in Germany for a few years and he bought this painting! Unfortunately he died of a massive heart attack in September 1988 at the age of 39!! Our third son was born on September 30th 1988 which is the date of Diego Voci’s passing [Actual date of Death is August 10, 1985]!! His parents cherished this painting and when both were diseased the 9 siblings had a drawing to share the objects that everyone wanted and my husband won the painting which we love and reminds us of his closest brother!!!” and here is the Index card with Helga Voci handwritten info on Major Michel Lambert, Claude’s brother. Our Diego Voci Project Team will continue posting more of the the ‘lost’ paintings! Greetings from the DVP, Coop, Stephen Max and Lisa Camargo
Diego Voci; 60 x 50 cm oil on canvas (polaroid image of painting)
The internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) is known as “The Artist of a Thousand Faces”. Diego claimed he painted them all from memory. The exception was his time doing caricatures, when he would complete 20 in two to three hours. Helga, Diego’s widow, remembers “People would stand in line waiting their turn. They loved him. When we met in Paris and we needed money Diego would go away with a pad of 20 sheets of paper, and come back with money.”
We know this masterful painting was purchased in Diego’s studio for $450 on 4th April 1981. Please tell us if you have any clue of the owner of this painting or any information on this painting?

“Diego never copied” said the widow, Helga of her internationally collected artist husband Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Others who knew Diego confirmed he did everything from either memory or pure creativity. The experienced eye can spot Cezanne’s influence but, the work remains distinctly Diego. (Check out the #pears).
Helga found this faded (the rich color is gone) Polaroid indicating Joseph Di Giacinto paid only $380 in Stuttgart, #Germany in 1975. “Hey Joseph!” Contact us at diegovociproject.com.
Here is the back of the index card of the painting’s information from the original purchase back in 1980. Any information on the whereabouts… the owner of this painting please contact the Diego Voci Project (DVP) at email@example.com.
