Diego Collector; Norm Hershfield shares his own personal experience with how he collected Diego artworks;
“I never really met Diego. I fell in love with his (Diego) paintings, when I saw them at Dino’s Restaurent (a favorite restaurant of Diego Voci’s Art Historian, Coop Cooprider) and the Ramsteiner Hof. I also frequented Herr Dahm’s Gallery in Wiesbaden for many years. I bought mine (Diego paintings) from the agent (Christine Khan) who sold them at the Ramstein Officer’s Club and at some of the bazaars.”
Diego Voci; “Jeune Fille avec Fleurs” #10802-106, 40x50cm oil on canvas
“Jeune Fille avec Fleurs” (40x50cm #10802-106, oil on canvas) graced the walls of La Gondola #restaurant where Diego Voci Art Historian Coop Cooprider dined several times with #Diego during his years in #Germany. This unique Diego artwork is of #glass paint. And to add to Coop’s experience with sitting there and being surrounded by paintings by Diego Voci on the walls carrying on their own conversation (if the walls could talk).
#Diego loved stopping at restaurants every town he drove thru or visited.
Becoming friendly with the owners of restaurants was an everyday common occurrence for Diego. So much so, that, Sig. #Daneluzzi of #Ristorante #Firenze purchased this painting “Jeune Fille avec Fleurs” at #La_Gondola Restaurant back in November 24, 1980 ($480) to display in his own Restaurant Firenze. Dameluzzi owns 4 paintings and 8 Lithos and drawings . Coop loved the Gnocchi at Firenze, his wife Patti, the Spaghetti Carbonara.
