Rembrandt: An artist captivated with his own image. Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee 1920-1985) was a fan of Rembrandt. Every now and them you can see the influence. Here is an example of “Little boy” with a impressionistic touch by Diego Voci.
Marsha Largent Piper (daughter of Dr. Ogden Brown, collector of Diego Voci and once USA agent for Diego Voci) just sent the Diego Voci Project an image of herself with Diego during the 1973 Diego Voci Exhibition at the Broadmoor in Boulder, Colorado. Marsha recalls laughing often with Diego.
In 1973, when Diego was staying with collector Dr. Ogden Brown in Colorado, Diego was at his creative best. He experimented with Glass paint right in the Brown’s kitchen. Diego cooked and painted with glass paint. Yes Diego had to “cook” the glass paint.
From Marsha’s collection here is a wild example by Diego:
Carole Aaron parent’s originally purchased “Deportation” by internationally collected art Antonio Diego Voci on a Sunday in Patrick Henry Village near Heidelberg, Germany in the early 1970’s. Carole recalls Diego as a charismatic, passionate and very proud of his work. Carole’s parents felt this work was so dramatic. It hung in her parents den for over 40 years before it was consigned. Purchased by a new owner. Now the opportunity to have this profound work of art is available on EBAY for sale.
Stephen Max shares “The boundless creativity of Diego Voci is displayed in this immersive, devotional painting, Le Amiche. It captures a stunning composition throughout every inch . The saturated colours are highlighted with an application of 24 carat gold leaf . Posterity can truly regard Diego as an artist of exceptional talent. This painting consolidates his achievement into a creation which encourages people to engage with art in a way which is more involving.”
Stephen Max This month while browsing through some of the old 35mm slides from Helga Voci shoebox collection, I discovered and restored a 35 MM slide of this beautiful painting by Diego™ titled La Fille du Port. The only information I have from the slide is the title and size (70 X 80 CM).
This #village scene titled “Bauernhaus” probably should have been posted for your pleasure long ago even through somebody inadvertently got red pen ink on the image just above the #tree. We had put in it small pile of other images titled “Not usable”. So here it is now. Nice work Diego! Framed by Helga Voci, Diego’s widow since cancer took him in 1985.
