The exquisite #painting title “Lady with Fur” was originally owned by a Colonel (who has since passed away). This painting was seen in a run-down home. A neighbor to the run-down home, Cheryl Gossman, went over as people were throwing the contents of the home in the trash. Cheryl saw this painting “Lady with Fur” across the room and inquired about having the painting. The individuals clearing out the house said “sure”. This painting is one of about 4000 oil paintings internationally collected #artist #Diego Voci completed during his lifetime (1920-1985).
Now this painting is seen, viewed and admired each day. You too, may find a #Diego anywhere to own and enjoy. This is a truth amongst the collectors we have identified to date over 1000 Diego paintings and drawings we have cataloged in the Diego Voci Estate Archive.
Diego Voci; “Jeune Fille avec Fleurs” #10802-106, 40x50cm oil on canvas
“Jeune Fille avec Fleurs” (40x50cm #10802-106, oil on canvas) graced the walls of La Gondola #restaurant where Diego Voci Art Historian Coop Cooprider dined several times with #Diego during his years in #Germany. This unique Diego artwork is of #glass paint. And to add to Coop’s experience with sitting there and being surrounded by paintings by Diego Voci on the walls carrying on their own conversation (if the walls could talk).
#Diego loved stopping at #restaurants every town he drove thru or visited.
Becoming friendly with the owners of restaurants was an everyday common occurrence for Diego. So much so, that, Sig. Danghuzzi of Ristorante Firenze purchased this painting “Jeune Fille avec Fleurs” at La Gondola Restaurant back in November 24, 1980 ($480) to display in his own Restaurant Firenze. Coop loved the Gnocchi at Firenze, his wife Patti, the Spaghetti Carbonara.
Scattered throughout the social media you will discover several “Dining with Diego” experiences.
