The goal was be immersed in the aura of centuries of creative genius. Diego did at least 9 high quality paper lithographs on stone. One is “Le Couple” chosen now to be “considered” for the 3rd book about Diego to be published by Stephen Max titled “Artist of a Thousand Faces”. ( A worldwide search is in progress to find unique faces by Diego for his 100th Anniversary) https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2020/04/15/planning-stages-and-you-can-be-featured/
Internationally collected artist (100th Birthday) Antonio Diego Voci (VOH-chee) 1920-1985 traveled to (Raphael’s birthplace) Urbino, Italy during his career as an artist.
“As Diego’s acclaim grew, he ventured into publishing another series of prints handmade on special lithostones in [Raphael’s birthplace] Urbino, Italy in 1979, financed by Naffouj Gallery.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci
Helga Voci, widow to Diego Voci, shares:
In 1979 we had gone to Urbino, Italy where Diego made a series of very beautiful Lithographs. They were handmade on special litho stones. We stayed there for about 10 days and it was very hard work.
Many curators and critics will tell you that the true talent of an artist is revealed in their drawings.
Take a blank piece of paper with a pen, or stick of graphite or pastel and swiftly with a sureness of line create a work of art finished in mere moments. DIEGO excelled in that talent and he did so incessantly. Diego was financially independent based totally upon his art. During his bohemian early life travels Diego did drawings for tourists on the streets of Rome, Venice, Aviano, and Milano.
