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.

This Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) painting titled “Bullfight” from December 1974 was purchased by George Beasley and the Diego Voci Project team (all volunteer group) is searching for this painting or the whereabouts of.
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.
