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.”
La Revolte by Diego Voci #251-201 70x80cm oil on canvas
We would like to locate this Diego Voci painting. All we know is the last name SOULE, as the original buyer on 24 April 1975. “LA REVOLTE” is by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985). The price paid 42 years ago was $720 in Germany, in the home studio where Diego and wife Helga lived. Diego was about people, a master at making them come alive. Help us find this Diego work of art.
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. #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.
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
