Bachofner shares her internationally collected artist Diego Voci story;
“I own two original Diegos’
purchased in 1973 through Naffouj Gallery, in Landstuhl, Germany. I bought two
large ones at the time at an art show through Naffouj Gallery. The exhibit was
held at the “General Von Steuben” Hotel in Wiesbaden and Diego Voci (VOH-chee
1920-1985) was there in person.
I later visited Diego at his home in Germany and purchased another small watercolor painting on wood directly from him. The colorful one on wood is a village scene. The other one is of a Pueblo village in the American southwest where Diego said he’d traveled. These are original and are signed by Diego. My two large Diego paintings are with me in Maine.”
Diego pictured here with Gigi-Bellati, and Lino-Storero at-La-Gondola 1977. Notice the painting on display in the upper right hand side of the image, titled: “Young Lady by the Window”. When this image was featured in Diego’s Blog on WordPress, it didn’t take long before we received an email from one of Diego’s Collectors. The note and image shown below from The Wilcox Family.
…I was stunned to see that we own the beautiful Young Lady by the Window which is depicted in your 1977 photo on the wall directly above Diego and Lino Storero. We won this watercolor and ink as a door prize at one of his home studio showings in #Wiesbaden Taunestein! Best Regards and Wishes… …Stan and Sibylle Wilcox
“Still Life Cubic” is mixed media of great texture and depth. The work was created in my childhood family home in 1981 by my great uncle #Diego Voci. He worked quickly that day. Diego had pastels and crayons, my crayons, and water colors. It was hard to believe that this great Master was equally inclined to work with my crayons as he was with an expensive European pastel. His lines are soft but delineate the foreground subject from the cubist space from which it protrudes. It is kind of a reverse Vermeer effect (Chris Voci).
