“PLAYING CHILDREN”… WHERE IS IT NOW?

Playing Children #4812-149 oil on canvas 60 x 80 in

“PLAYING CHILDREN” by Diego Voci #4812-149, Oil on canvas 60x80cm

 “Playing Children” arrived from Germany, spring of 1981, in a shipment of several Diego Voci paintings for consignment with Stephen Max in Canada.  Diego Voci was exclusively represented by Stephen Max in Canada.  He was the gateway to Diego Voci’s limelight in Canada.  “Playing Children” was shipped for a major showing thru Van Zoolingen Gallery in Edmonton.  This particular painting was sold for $1250 within weeks of its arrival in Canada.

Diego, childlike, most of his life, enjoyed the sense of play in all that he did day to day.  His daughter Alessandra was 7 years old when this artwork was done in “Playing Children”, Diego captures the spirit of emotions from the inspiration he pulled from where ever he was.  Note the hula hoop.
