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.”

SAME GIRL? LOOKS LIKE IT!

Ragazza Con Cappello and Girl with Black Hat

Ragazza Con Cappello (left)  and Girl with Black Hat (right) both by Diego Voci

Both Diego paintings bought in Stuttgart in the month of May 1975.  We know who owns the silver framed version “Girl with Black Hat” (50x60cm oil on canvas), Mary Trimmins.  Mary started the first website for internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci in 2008, here is the link: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818.html

But where is the girl in the gold frame? “Ragazza Con Cappello” (50x60cm oil on canvas), purchased by EDWARD DZANIS May 31, 1975.

Diego is known as “The Artist of a Thousand Faces”.  In this case it looks like 2 versions of the same beautiful lady.

Helga Voci shares from her Photo Album…

Just received on Facebook Messenger from Helga images of old photographs from an art show that took place 1983 or 84 at La Bella Casa Restaurant in Kaiserslautern.

This is one of many art shows Diego had at restaurants.  Diego loved gathering around people, food, and selling his works of art.

Diego Voci; “Lady with Fur” 

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.

Help us find the hidden gem works of art by Diego Voci. Email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com

We thank Cheryl for reaching out to us and for saving and sharing “Lady with Fur”.

#DINING WITH #DIEGO… SURROUNDED BY #ART

Jeune Fille avec Fleurs #10802-106 front index card Danghuzzi - Copy

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. #Daneluzzi 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. Dameluzzi owns 4 paintings and 8 Lithos and drawings . 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. See  more: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page10.html#97229

#ARTISTS THAT #PAINT THE SAME #SUBJECT IN VARIED MULTIPLE PAINTINGS!

Dorf au Menorca and Casa di Contadini

Dorf au Menorca” and “Casa di Contadini” (both oil on canvas)

“Artists often paint multiple paintings of the same subject. #Picasso painted numerous paintings of Dora Maar and Marie Therese, Edward #Hopper used his wife, Jo, in most of his female subjects in paintings, #Bonnard also painted his wife in numerous paintings, Andy #Warhol did quite a number of Marilyn print, the same image but altered, #Monet painted dozens of haystack paintings, and multiple views of the Rouen Cathedral.”  Kathleen Grace, Artist, Art consultant, Instructor, former Museum Educator, Gallery Curator

“It’s quite common for an artist to paint a subject that you like working with in varied multiple paintings.”

#DIEGO (Antonio Diego Voci 1920-1985) was one of them! Here are two examples (above) of a similar landscape where Diego captured a similar feeling and essence in these two works.
