This is #3 in our countdown to Christmas Day featuring “Madonna and Child” portrayals by Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985), one from 1966 and one from 1975. Is the idea possible?
This DIEGO VOCI painting provoked 4 questions:
1. “Is God Black?”
2. “Was Mother Mary Persian?”
3. “Was Jesus Mulatto?”
4. “Does God have DNA?”
We’ll publish your comments. Email us at: email@example.com.
This prized Diego Voci is the first of several dozen oil paintings in the private collection of the Coop Cooprider family, purchased in 1966.
This painting is included in the museum 20 year retrospective https://youtu.be/GG5Jl-2FuXM
