"Al la Fenetre" (At the Window), ca 1976, #707 (31 ½ x 39 ½ ) Oil on Canvas.
Awesome. Really great. Have been following along, will catch up with you soon.
Wonderfully great works! I too have been following. Always impressed with Diego's work.
Dear Retired, Response to POST #5
One year and two months ago, you inquired about the value of DIEGO art on the “DIEGO Voci (Antonio Diego Voci)” <email> We also purchased DIEGOs in the late 60's. Who did you buy them from? Joy Naffouj? Or?
Do you still have your DIEGO painting and Pastel? If so, please post the images on the “DIEGO Voci (Antonio Diego Voci)” thread. I posted 13 of our DIEGOs. More to come. The website has grown with over 250 DIEGOs owned by 30 or so owners from Canada, Germany and USA. Remember to list size, titles, and possible year of purchase.
If you've sold any, to whom did they go, so the images can be captured on ArtifactsCollectors.com? If not, are you interested in selling the oil painting?
Also, check out the “DIEGO Voci History” thread on Artifactscollectors.com. Good Stuff!
Dear Nancy, ANSWER to POST #11
Interesting that you lived in DIEGO’s old studio converted to an apartment within the Voci home after his death. I saw his wife Helga in March. She looks great. She is putting together some memorabilia to post on the newer ArtifactCollectors.com thread “DIEGO Voci History.” It would be terrific if you could post your experience and facts there.
I notice that you answered the “FORMERMIL” post, that the sales person was “Christine.” Her last name is “Khan.” She and Helga still meet regularly.
Dear LauraLee, ANSWER to POST #68
Were you successful in selling your self-portrait of DIEGO Voci?
If no, please post it here so we can build the record of DIEGO works. Also, if no, I’d like to see it if high quality and reasonable price.
And, if yes, to whom did you sell it so we can build up a directory of DIEGO owners.
By the way, there are photos of DIEGO on the newer ArtifactCollectors.com thread “DIEGO Voci History” so you can compare DIEGO’s likeness to your painting.
To Steve (Guest) Post #124
Who are you and where are you? Are you one of the other 3 or more "Steve"s that have posted on this thread? I'm suffering from "Steve" confusion
TO SWILCOX POST #70
You wrote over a year ago that in the early 80’s you purchased 11 DIEGO pieces that you’d consider sell, trade or purchase - with an interest in surreal/cubism Harlequins.
You also said that you’d post images. Please do so. Remember titles, size, medium, and dates of purchase if possible.
There’s a lot that’s been added to this site since your post. Over 30 DIEGO owners of over 250 paintings. You’ll also like what’s new on the “DIEGO Voci History” thread here on Artifactcollectors.com
I’d be interested in purchase of one or two high quality DIEGO oil paintings if at a reasonable price.

POST to LUCY (Guest) #75
Did you know Vincent,DIEGO's 15 year older brother? I met him and his wife Anna in 1974 in Philadelphia. Interesting how similar his mannerisms were to DIEGO.
Please do post your DIEGO painting here if you still have it. Remember title, size, and date of purchase. If not, to whom did you sell, so we can build a directory of DIEGO owners and their DIEGO works of art. You also said you’d be tempted to buy more? Did you? I wouldn’t mind purchasing a couple of high quality DIEGO works at reasonable prices.
Last, you’ll enjoy checking out the newer <email> called “DIEGO Voci History.” Good stuff!

I'll sign off as Stephen M from now on. I'm the Steve in Alberta Canada who represented Diego from 81 till his passing.
You've managed to spark quite an iterest and following recently...well done!
I'll be out of touch for a while, travelling to Florida for some property matters there. Will link up on my return.
Dear Jeff and Jane, POST #76

Ursula and Peter from Germany bought the following 6 DIEGO paintings they would like to sell. They bought them 30 years ago and they are all unique. We've requested that they send the sizes of each of these nice quality oil paintings, but wanted to share them with other DIEGO aficionados in the meantime. Coop

4 months ago you posted a note that you have 4 DIEGOs which your parents bought while in Worms.
If you still have them, please post images of your DIEGO pieces here at Artifactcollectors.com on this thread. I posted 13 of ours. More to come. You’ll see other recent images by other DIEGO owners as well. Remember to list size, titles, and possible year of purchase. In your case also list the medium.
Also, check out the “
DIEGO Voci History” thread on Artifactcollectors.com. And, if your brochure is the one I designed, you will see it there. DIEGO’s widow just posted some history of her life with DIEGO on “DIEGO Voci History” as well.
To Jerry O - Guest - Post #94 6.11.10
You wrote in your ArtifactCollectors.com post 4 months ago that Galerie DAHMS closed when Mr. Sigfried Dahms died several years ago. It was a main outlet of his works. That is true to the German Market.
We’ve started a new thread “DIEGO Voci History” on this site with facts and memorabilia. It contains a Biography by his great-nephew Chris Voci and some new history by Helga Voci, DIEGO’s widow. If you have any experiences you should post them.
You also mentioned that you have one large painting. You should post your DIEGO on this “DIEGO Voci (Antonio Diego Voci)” thread. I posted 13 of ours. More to come. You’ll see other recent images by other DIEGO painting owners. Remember to list size, title, and possible year of purchase.
TO YORK FISHER - Guest POST #90 6.11.10
I read your post of 4 months ago. We dined many times with DIEGO at La Gondola in Ramstein with Gigi the owner. My son had the ABC Insurance Agency in Ramstein as well. Did you buy your DIEGO paintings on base?
We have a grandson living in Ramstein, where his mother lives. Handsome, like a young Paul Newman. He wants to come to America, when he graduates from German University. We were there in March. We met with Helga Voci while there.
Please post images of your four DIEGO paintings on the Artifactcollectors.com - this same thread “DIEGO Voci (Antonio Diego Voci).” I posted 13 of ours. More to come. You’ll see other recent images by other DIEGO owners as well. Remember to list size, titles, and possible year of purchase.
Also, check out the “DIEGO Voci History” thread on Artifactcollectors.com. If you have an interesting experience with DIEGO you could post your facts there. Who, what, where and when. Helga, DIEGO’s widow just added 2 chapters there of her life with DIEGO.
Would love to post our Diego collection but have not figured out how to do it. Any guidance would be appreciated. Please respond to <email> .
POST to Steven #81 6.11.10
I met your grandfather Vincent (DIEGO’s brother) and his wife Ana in their home 1974. They gave me a few great photos of DIEGOand one of Josiane, DIEGO's first wife.
When can all of us DIEGO aficionados view your DIEGO painting? Please post it here on this thread with size and title.
You say lots of family have art by DIEGO. We need the help of you and your father Anthony, to help identify thousands of DIEGO owners around the globe who possess about 10,000 DIEGO paintings and drawings.
Also you and your father should post your personal experience and facts of DIEGO’s life and work Who. What. Where. When... on “DIEGO VOCI History,” a newer thread on this website.
Did you take that trip to Northern Italy? Consider creating a video of people who knew DIEGO.
I'll try again.
OOPS! Duplicate Post to #81.
Wow! 19 more DIEGO Voci artworks uncovered in our search for about 10,000 DIEGO paintings and drawings.
Are you also Post#137 under “Question-Guest” and Post #139 under “My favorite-Guest?”
If so, you could contact Kami at via e-mail listed below and set up a phone-call (we’re in CA). She can tell you how she posted images for me. She’s helping me temporarily.
You said you were interested to sell. I’d be interested in good quality at a reasonable price. I’d need to view the clear images, size, title, medium, and possible year purchased.
How did you come by the sketch that DIEGO had done the day he died? Were you present at their home that day? DIEGO’s widow Helga told me they had a reception and show at the house that December weekend, and he died the following Tuesday. Perhaps you could add a description of your personal experience to the new thread “DIEGO Voci History” on this website.
Thanks Coop (by Kami)

This is test to see if posting an image as an unsigned in “Guest” works for us.
This is the funeral notice after DIEGO’s death on December 10, 1985. The image on the inside is the oldest DIEGO artwork in Helga Voci’s exceptional collection.
You can see more about “Helga and DIEGO” on the “DIEGO History” thread.
Post #137 and #139, who we think may also be the same person as #112, had difficulty uploading a DIEGO image. He sent us one by e-mail and requested we post it.The image was too large as sent. Remember to resize, i.e. this one was 2.4 MB - we got it down to 119KB.
Consider it done. Any interested buyer would need more information. Size, title, medium, year, whatever provenance available.
I'll try to upload another picture I have resized.
Well, with the helpful suggestions from Kami I was finally able to post one of my pictures. It is the ink on paper one in the post above. Diego drew this especially for an open house at his residence. Christine ran the open house and we later learned that Diego actually was upstairs deathly ill, and that he died several days later. We attended his funeral a few days later. Due to the provenance of this picture, it has special significance for us. Below are 6 more from our collection. They show the broad range of his work. All are originals, Artist Proofs, or numbered and signed lithographs.
The first picture is called "Die Muschel" (The sea shell), is an artist proof and was purchased September 83. Frame dimensions are 18.5 x 22.5.
The second picture is an original oil "Jeune Harlequin", was purchased September 82 and measures 26 x 30.
The third picture is an original mixed media "Les deux Jeunes", was purchased in May 82 and measures 20 x 26.
The fourth picture is a lithograph of a sewing lady with child, edition 26 of 60, and measures 14 x 16.
The last item in this posting is a lithograph of two clowns, edition 24 of 95, was purchased in April of 87 and measures 13 x 16.
Here is the second batch.
The first picture is an original work called "Marsita", was purchased November 83, and measures 26.5 x 30.5.
The second item is a lithograph of a nude, edition 10 of 60, and measures 11.5 x 15.5.
The third picture is one of Diego's popular oils "Old man with glasses", was purchased in September 83, and measures 23 x 26.5.
The final item is an original "Two clowns" and measure 9 x 11.
Congratulations for registering on [url]Artifact Collectors and posting the additional images. You should also post your experience with DIEGO on the “DIEGO Voci History” thread. Helga Voci has some new remembrances worth reading, if you haven’t already enjoyed them.
Your DIEGO ink drawing from the last days of DIEGO's life (post #144) is truly impressive, the strong lines, no hesitation, no second guessing of his stroke. The masters of cubism, George Braque, Juan Gris, maybe even Picasso would say, “Not bad, DIEGO, not bad at all.”
Ref Post 143
This picture is an original nude "Act", was purchased July 84 and measures 17.5 x 19.
Ref Post 144:
This is an original sketch by Diego "Ink on paper", measures 18.5 x 22.5 and was won as a door prize at the last Open House held at Diego's house in Taunusstein-Neuhof. That was on a Saturday and he died the Tuesday thereafter. We were priviledged to attend his funeral.

This small community website has done more to enhance the awareness of DIEGO art and bring the owners together from all over the world- than any other place since DIEGO’s death in December 1985.
But, we need to do much more. Put synergism of all DIEGO fans to work. There are over 4,000 DIEGO paintings plus many more drawings scattered all over the globe.
Who do you know who owns one? Ask around. Get them involved. Get them to post an image here. And, who can help us expand onto the social networking sites?
The mission is to greatly enhance the awareness and value of DIEGO’s great body of work. Leaders, step forward and take charge! We are experiencing a DIEGO rebirth after 2 ½ decades of near silence.
Helga Voci, DIEGO’s widow is putting together more memorabilia. Chris Voci is working on an expanded website mentioned in earlier posts. And, more to come...
I have one given to me by my father who was in the military, as a mechanic, in Augsburg, Germany in the early 70's. I was pretty young but it is numbered 187, and called Tommy (Clown) on the back. He was given this after fixing Diego's car. Father died in September, but indicated that it was the artist who gave this to him for fixing his car. It took me forever find out who Diego was, and it all points to here. So I have a pic of the image that I have attached.
Okay I resized the image. Maybe this will work. Tommy the Clown 187
