#Prag #Tschechnei by #artist Diego Voci

“Praq/Tschenchien” by Diego Voci



The time is June 1939. The place is Prague, Czechoslovakia. Gertrud and Walter Drössler name their new baby girl “Helga”.

Who could predict that fate would place Helga Drössler, 21 years later in the popular Paris artist café “Les Deux Magots”, where Helga’s acquaintance and famous sculptor Gigi Guadagnucci, would enter with debonair artist #DiegoVoci whom he would introduce to her? See photo of Diego and quote in Wikipedia Biography of Antonio Diego Voci http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci

“My life took on new meaning. I became more.” – Diego to Helga

Helga became Diego’s constant companion, lover, confidant and wife. Within those 25 abundant years together Diego created 4000 oils mostly on canvas and many thousands of drawings. In honor of Helga’s place of birth, Diego painted this scene on wood, titled “Prag/Tschechnei” signed “D. Voci”, oil on wood, 31 ½” x 22 ½”.
