A #MEMORY OF #JFK & #ARTIST DIEGO VOCI

Margaret Carrow shares memories of her Aunt’s memories of how she collected her two internationally collected artist Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) paintings.

Margaret shares;

My Aunt lived most of her life in Europe working for the Air Force as an administrator of the Air Force schools, in Germany, France and Spain. She is 93 (in 2012) years old and I have moved her back to the states,along with her personal possessions including two of her paintings.She talked about the artist she knew while she was in Germany. The two oil paintings by Diego are signed on the front and the back. I have taken pictures of them and have included them with this letter. One of the paintings needs some repairs, and I didn’t know how I should have this done. My Aunt is living in a retirement home, and wanted her paintings to be with her. She told me that Diego was working on a painting for President Kennedy when she first met Diego.”

#DIEGO WHO?

Gigi, Restaurant La Gondola owner, DIEGO VOCI, Stars & Stripes Reporter

Not Diego, the Game.  Not artists, Diego Riviera or Diego Velázquez.  This is about Diego Voci!

Joy Naffouj, a Canadian Art Dealer met internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985, VOH-chee) in 1966 in Germany.  She was attracted to his strong painting style; very different from her stable of the other artists she represented. He had been signing his great body of work with some form of “Voci”. But everyone knew him as “Diego”.  Joy convinced him to sign his paintings thereafter with the “Diego” signature.

Coop Cooprider spotted “Diego’s” work at an exhibition at her studio in Ramstein, Germany.  Diego also displayed at the Restaurant La Gondola, Gigi, the owner, pictured with Diego and a Stars & Stripes reporter.

A RARE DIEGO MOMENT CAPTURED…

…In 1972, 12 years after Helga Drössler was introduced to Diego in Paris at the famous artist filled café, Les Deux Magots.  Diego and Helga remain intimately connected with each brushstroke until his death in 1985.  In this great candid photo in his home studio in Schwetzingen, Germany, Diego had already painted over 1000 oil paintings on canvas with Helga.  Diego is intent and surrounded by all that he truly loved, his paints, brushes, a canvas and most importantly, his wife Helga.  (VOH-chee)    https://youtu.be/_WUYmz0Jkc0 
This letter was written by Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci. She sent this letter when she sent the photo of the two of them.

WHAT’S IN DIEGO’S MAILBOX TODAY?

Gene Pizzo emailed The Diego Voci Project to shares with us:

“I met Diego Voci in Bitburg AB in the early ’70s where I appreciated his work but could not afford to buy them. In the late ’70s & early ’80s, at Spangdahlem AB, I was in a position to buy. I have 11 Diego works of art, mostly oils, and treasure them. Unfortunately, we have downsized and no longer have the wall space to admire them all!   

I have been to Diego’s atelier twice, by invitation, and was delighted to observe the artist at work and to chat with him and his lovely wife, Helga.

I have been living in Tampa, Florida, since July, 1982. 

It’s hard to pick favorites in my collection, but always felt that “I Due Mondi” stood out above the rest (maybe because it was so different??). (selfie attached)    

I promise to photograph them, as requested, and send you a link. That will be my next project!”
