One of the artists, Christa Volkert-Vogel in Germany who met Diego several times on Diego’s travels to the #Schwarzwald (Black Forest) area, in this case #Offenburg. She not only loved Diego’s master artistry, Christa says “he greatly affected my art.” Christa purchased 5 DIEGO artworks, “La Lettura per il Teatro” (Reading for the Theatre), which she acquired on October 26, 1980, is shown here:
Christa remembers, “In my youth I had courses at the “Painters Vocational School” in Lahr, with several regional artists including Diego Voci, an internationally known artist and compelling contemporary painter. Thus a sound foundation was created that would help me in my future endeavors. After many years of making it my hobby, I studied art in 1998 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lahr. Years later I also taught there.”
(“In meiner Jugendzeit hatte ich an der Malerfachschule in Lahr, bei mehreren regionalen Malern sowie bei Diego Voci, einem überregional bekannten Künstler und überzeugenden Maler der Gegenwart, Kurse belegt. So wurde eine fundierte Grundlage geschaffen, die mir später zu einem Kunststudium verhelfen würde.”)
Christa also recalls one day that Diego was drawing several flower-themed artworks and says her own renderings were highly influenced from that one day forward!
