“La #fille du #port” by #DIEGO

La fille du port” owned by Tom Frinta  and his wife Ena is best described in Tom’s own words,                                                                                                                                                    “La fille du port” is actually my favorite picture. I look at it several times a day. There is a very precious meaning. Her expression shows that poverty does not reduce the human values. Her face is still so beautiful and sovereign although she cannot afford a new dress.”

After connecting with Tom in March of 2015, the DVP found that not only did Tom share an exciting and clandestine adventure with “Diego” himself, this exquisite oil painting by Diego has a story of it’s own. To read about their “energizing” #adventure click on link at bottom of the WP post.

Circa 1973 Helga #Voci began keeping index cards of Diego oil #paintings, cards not found again until this year. Of recent DVP discovered 2 cards for the same painting. Coop has been the Diego Voci #Historian since #1973 and he and wife Patti continue to collect Diego #artwork and proudly display them with no intent to let go of any Diego artwork!

In 1974 Coop purchased“La fille du port” in Diego’s studioDiego later, on Christine Khan’s behalf, asked Coop & Patti for some of their Diego collection to keep Christine in business.  Since Coop let Patti choose a few, he had no idea which paintings were selected. Fortunately and unfortunately it ended up including the “La fille du port”.La fille du port 3 Images in 1 for post 3 DEC 2017

Once we made the connection of 2 Index cards selling the same painting the mystery was solved. Sold to Coop in 1974, it was resold to Tom in 1980, who proudly refers to Diego as his “close friend Antonio”.  “La fille du port” is in good hands with Tom and Ena.

Coop says “Tom has great taste”and that had he known Patti selecting this one          he’d have stopped her!
