ENERGY never disappears and takes on new Form....

Oil becomes gasoline powering cars emitting CO2 that trees and plants inhale giving us back oxygen. And so it transforms. TRANSITION.

Leo Gerardo, a true aficionado in Germany, of DIEGO Voci, is a better than average hobby painter. Here is his portrayal of his wife. Both attended Helga Voci's reception on Easter Weekend.

One of his DIEGO paintings can be seen today as Painting of the Week http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting- of-the-week-5154118/Page3.html#61

Leo claims in early 1980's he refused the offer.

Also, here is another image from a photo he gave us at the Easter reception of another DIEGO painting "Die Feldarbeit".

DIEGO or DEGAS?



This is NOT a DIEGO VOCI painting. It is "Race Horses" by Edgar Degas.

The 1962-63 DIEGO "Horses Racing" can be seen http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting- of-the-week-5154118.html#7.

DIEGO painted it in studio provided within the notable "Schlossgalerie" in Zurich, Switzerland.

STOLEN DIEGO VOCI PAINTING

COOPRIDER UPS REWARD TO $30,000

This DIEGO VOCI clown painting was stolen about 1980 from the attic of the building we rented at Am Hang 1, in Otterbach, 6756 Germany, (outskirts of Kaiserslautern).

At the same time from the same place 3 other DIEGO oil paintings were also stolen, along with a large 6' x 7' DIEGO charcoal drawing of Christ on the Cross done on rolled white paper. The recently found clown image is the only evidence, no photos of the others. <phone> . All disappeared at the same time, but, without photos and, without any evidence, no police report was made.

$30,000 when "The Clown" is returned in original condition.



Clown, est. 24" x 20" ca. 1974, oil on canvas

DIEGO VOCI communicates to the viewer an amazing amount of pathos so deeply felt from the inner core of this human being, pathos so indelible that any amount of clown paint cannot disguise. The emotions and feelings in this piece lend to wanting to be understood and feel safe. The pureness of white paint cleansing the external hiding the internal, and a want to bring forth the true self. Was it a portrayal of DIEGO himself?

The original painting until now was printed only in black and white, first in the 1974 DIEGO 8 page catalog, and the 1974 TV Guide http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history- 4330818.html#6; and subsequently as a B/W lithograph DON ABELL, photographer for Stars and Stripes Newspaper did the B/W images. This color image was taken by Mr. Cooprider, owner, prior to the time of theft.

I just found your site. My sister and I occasionally try to find out more about Antonio Diego Voci; we have an appraiser coming to town (one of those traveling road shows with a TV appraiser) so I was trying to find out something again... our brother left us a large original he obtained when he was in Weisbaden in the 1970s. It's of an old man and is probably 2.5 x 2 feet, in its original frame. We're trying to find out its value.

Sorry about the photos attached--the flash isn't good on one but shows the colors more accurately; the other is without flash and doesn't show the colors much at all.

Any information would be appreciated!

Diane K,
Reference to Link #232

Curiosity is spreading among new owners of DIEGO art. Your experience is one new to many because DIEGO buyers who kept and cherished their paintings for 30 and 40 years are in their most senior years, (some no longer here) and new owners such as you are the beneficiaries.

Until a couple of years ago, there was a 25 year vacuum of information about international artist DIEGO VOCI. While the current art market is setting astronomical record prices, DIEGO until now has been an unknown with a scant few recorded sales for DIEGO, all for too low.

Suggest you print out or read the brand new page on WIKIPEDIA titled Antonio Diego Voci which I suspect your road show appraiser may not be aware. It tells why there are few recorded sales for DIEGO.

Your DIEGO is well rendered. The frame is original, too, the type used by Helga Voci who did the framing (and titles). It would be helpful if you provided more details so the painting can be cataloged. Your email was blocked by AC so we can't send you the Archive Questionnaire. See below for Questionnaire. Perhaps you can contact us directly at:

Thank You

Thank you so much! I will print out and send the questionnaire to document our painting. And I will print out the Wikipedia page and give it to the appraiser... and let you know what he says.

In 1973-74 I was stationed at Ramstein AB, Germany. While there, my wife worked at the Naffouj Gallery. I was able to purchase one of Diego's works from Joy Naffouj's private gallery which I have attached hereto. I would like to know if anyone could give me an approximate value to the work. While I love the oil, I may well be willing to part with it. Any comments would be appreciated. I may be contacted at <email> .

Chris-- Thanks for your reply. Written on the back of the canvas in the upper right hand corner are the numbers 1345.9, In the middle in the same type pencil or crayon match is written Diego Composition. In the bottom right hand corner is written #P835. Signed by Joy Naffouj is written Private Collection which is in a different shade of crayon/paint. If you would like more info, you can <phone> . Thanks again.

DIEGO VOCI Painting/Joy Naffouj "Private Collection"

To Don Candell,

Chris Voci gave a nice interpretation of your Diego (Posts #239 & #240). "Private Collection Joy Naffouj" written on the back indicates the execution of the painting was likely in the late 60's. That was the time period Naffouj had a 5 year guarantee agreement that DIEGO would produce so many paintings for so much money. Joy and Jawdat each selected from that 5 years of DIEGO production some of the best for themselves. That's also when Naffouj brought the Diego signature into being.

Coincidentally, just last week we took a photo of a DIEGO we had stored. As you can see, mine also has the Joy Naffouj signature on the back.

I bought the above painting from Jawdat that he stored in the attic. Joy by that time had already gone to Canada to live. This one was not even on a stretcher, a flat heavy burlap-type canvas. Jawdat and Joy sold me many Diego's, and Stephan Le Grec, and Amiot, and Diedier Grandt, and Paulucci, and Dali and other stuff.

On your Diego, I found curious the hand. I'm sure you noticed. The thumb should be on the top, not bottom. If you didn't notice, compare it to your own right hand. Did Diego miss it? Or is it a left hand not belonging to either lady? A third person trying to sneak a piece of fruit? A prank by a trickster artist?

Here's a link to the DIEGO Archive form. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio- diego-voci-3984818/Page8.html#234. Also instructions on how to post future image. http://www.artifactcollectors.com/i-have-two-diegos.- one-is-a-large-48-by-60-oil-of-a-group-of-men-playi...- 5717818.html#4
