Diego Voci; Donna con Bambino Tempera on Copper 80x60cm D-5735

From the collectors of this Diego Voci work of art, Don and Becky Fry share their history with Diego and Helga Voci;

“We have very fond memories of meeting Diego and Helga. Our first, “Donna con Bambino” was purchased at the Patch Barracks Offier Club during a baazar which we always frequented. In the 1970’s there wasn’t much to do for a young family. We were in our mid 20s. We did meet Diego and Helga. After his (Diego’s) death we traveled to his home and met with Helga. We also met Christine Khan (one of Diego’s Representatives and a dear friend to Helga) several times. We returned to Germany in 1984 and immediately wanted to purchase Diego’s work. We took a family trip from Kitzingen to Wiesbaden AB purchased a couple of Diegos. After 1985 we purchased a couple others. I acquired the Poster from the Education Center at Larson Barracks where I was stationed.”

From the Diego Voci Project, we thank, Don and Becky Fry for sharing their memories of Diego Voci. Their words only highlight what most Diego Voci collectors share in common is the the potato chip phenomenon (once you buy one Diego you end up purchasing more).
