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:
At least the Amazonen existed in Diego’s dream which he transferred to this canvas “Die Amazonen”. The ancient parchment illustrated is only the second known tribute to the Amazon warrior woman by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). Help us find this one.
In 1973, The Brown Family curated the first USA exhibition for DIEGO VOCI at Boulder Colorado’s exclusive Broadmoor Resort. The Invitation:
Diego Voci; Il Spazzocamino, oil on canvas 60x70cm
The Brown Family retained this painting “Il Spazzocamino” for their family collection of Diegos.
The significance of a “chimney sweep” brings good luck in Germany. When the chimney was stopped up, the man in black had to be called in to clear the flue so you could finally cook your food again. A clean sweep also reduced the risk of setting the house on fire. So to this day we consider it good luck to see a chimney sweep.”
This dramatic “Green Horse”, surrealistic in nature oil painting is owned by Stephen and Wendy Max in Edmonton, Canada. The depth in the “Green Horse” is as effective as wearing 3-D glasses. Stephen and Wendy’s collection of Diego Voci artwork began in the late sixties, and after all these years still numbers 27 pieces. Large numbers of Diego works per collector is not uncommon especially in Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Italy and USA.
Before boarding Air Force One to return to USA from the G7 in Germany, the US President in a news conference declared that the Supreme Court should never have considered taking on the pending case questioning Obamacare Exchanges. Is he right?
Artists have illustrated questions about the “exchanges” since the day Obamacare took flight. Here are just two early examples:
The Diego Voci Project’s talented volunteer Stephen Max of Edmonton Canada has culminated YouTube videos of Diego Voci’s life. Each YouTube video was created to mark a special cornerstone of Diego’s life and all that Diego Voci contributed to the world to help bring forth the passion in human beings in his works of art.
Enjoy the journey from the artists’ hand on the canvas to a virtual museum exhibition:
