FOUND: #NATIVE-AMERICAN “INDIANER” by DIEGO VOCI FOR $6.99

INDIANER Zweigle 28 JAN 2018 KC Source GMAIL

Diego Voci: “Indianer” 17″x14″, Pastel and Tempera on Paper.

Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, recently acquired the above  “Indianer” from a couple in Texas for $300 including shipping. Brenda and Ralph Zweigle of lotathings.com came across this Diego #discovery in a #Goodwill store for $6.99! Not the first time the DVP has heard such stories! Do you recall the 97 cent buy? https://www.artifactcollectors.com/hot-buys-diego-voci-paintings-562.html
Coop bought the “Indianer” as a gift for Abel Sillas, one of Coop and Patti’s son-in-laws. Abel is from a “pueblo” north of Albuquerque and is a proud part Navajo Native American. Why is this significant? In 1973, Diego and his wife Helga on their 1st trip to the US included a Southwest destination. While there they traveled to several pueblos including Taos and Santa Fe. Diego rendered many a #Native-American from memory.
Abel Sillas married to Gabrielle, one of 6 daughters to Coop and Patti, helped raise two very talented, smart and very attractive children: Shane, 25, and Aliah, 21. Coop and Patti simply want to honor Abel for his role as a successful part in building their self-esteem, motivation and to make them feel loved. Shown here is the essence of good parenting! And, “Indianer” is an early b-day gift to Abel who only gets to celebrate every 4 years….

Diego Voci; “Lady with Fur” 

The exquisite #painting title “Lady with Fur” was originally owned by a Colonel (who has since passed away). This painting was seen in a run-down home. A neighbor to the run-down home, Cheryl Gossman, went over as people were throwing the contents of the home in the trash. Cheryl saw this painting “Lady with Fur” across the room and inquired about having the painting. The individuals clearing out the house said “sure”. This painting is one of about 4000 oil paintings internationally collected #artist #Diego Voci completed during his lifetime (1920-1985).

Now this painting is seen, viewed and admired each day. You too, may find a #Diego anywhere to own and enjoy. This is a truth amongst the collectors we have identified to date over 1000 Diego paintings and drawings we have cataloged in the Diego Voci Estate Archive.

Help us find the hidden gem works of art by Diego Voci. Email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com

We thank Cheryl for reaching out to us and for saving and sharing “Lady with Fur”.

Update:

Diego Voci AHAH! 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
