WHO OWNS THIS PAINTING NOW?

Jeune Fille en Blanc #641-030 80x60cm oil on canvas

Diego Voci; “Jeune Fille en Blanc” #641-030 oil on canvas 80x60cm 

“Jeune Fille en Blanc” was purchased back in 1974 by Diego Voci Historian, Coop Cooprider in Diego’s studio when Coop was helping Diego become better known. Diego opened up his studio to visitors and many experienced first hand the “magnetism” of Diego, so captivated by his art and his persona that most walked out with a painting or two in hand. Coop was no exception.

Throughout the years, Coop and his family have traveled and moved between Europe and United States, and along the way this painting has gone missing.

This unique cubistic/surrealist art work takes on the divide between two different styles. Where is the line between the two?

ONE #DIEGOVOCI PAINTING HOLDS SO MANY MEMORIES

Tony and Stacie Westbrook share their #heartfelt #story of their Diego Voci painting title “Petit Village de Montague” and how this #painting holds many years of memories for them.

In Tony’s words:

My wife and I purchased this piece while living in Germany and serving with the US military around 1982.  We seem to recall that we purchased it at an art show probably held at the Officers Club in either Stuttgart or Heidelberg.  We were living in Heilbronn at the time.  Over the years we have collected many pieces of art – originals and limited prints – yet this piece (Petit Village de Montague) remains our absolute favorite.  It is a constant reminder of our time in Europe and what we took on as a very young married couple.  I am happy to say that after 37 years we are still very happily married and that this piece always gets the most prominent spot in the house.  It has been all over the United States and has been enjoyed by countless numbers of our friends.  Its simplicity, warmth, and mixture of color/contrast make it a wonderful piece to gaze at and enjoy for a lifetime.  This painting is one of my most prized processions and I will never part with it.

“Petit Village de Montague” as painted by Diego, represented all that we loved about out time in Europe while allowing our imagination to constantly explore who lived in village, where the village was, what the families experienced, endured, and enjoyed about their town.  The painting just brought forth positive feelings and thoughts which is what drew us to it.

This is one example of stories we receive from collectors of Diego Voci’s work of art.  The Diego Voci Estate dreams of one day to find a generous benefactor to sponsor a major museum exhibition… in the meantime take a tour of Diego’s virtual museum: https://youtu.be/GG5Jl-2FuXM

 

HELGA AND DIEGOVOCI™, CHAPTER 6 PART 1 “1970-1976”

Helga BW Foto Profile w Cigarette  73-74

One third of my 76 years were spent with the love of my life, artist DIEGOVOCI™ (1920-1985).

That is me above in 1970 where this chapter of my life with DIEGO begins.

Diego was preparing an art show in Ravenna, Italy which was organized by Galleria Cairoli from October 30th to November 10th in 1970. We had a beautiful season, Italian lifestyle, sunshine, beach, and good Italian food.  After this exhibit we moved back to Germany in December of that year.

My parents were then building a house in Bavaria. Diego was drawing the plans and helped with the interior decoration. So we rented an apartment there from December 1970 until June 1972. At that time Diego still sent paintings to Naffouj, but he was not so happy anymore with the agreement, so we stopped and started doing the business ourselves.

 For several years we worked together with Liliane Dussard, a French lady who had been working in Naffouj Gallery before and later on. I think in 1974 or 75 Christine Khan took over. I am still in contact with Christine.

 In the meantime we moved from Bavaria to Schwetzingen near Heidelberg. There we had a little daughter, Alessandra (you can view a portrait Diego made of her in of the previous post). In 1976 we moved to Taunusstein near Wiesbaden, where we bought a house and where Diego lived and worked until his death in 1985. This house is where I still live today.

 During that time, in 1973, we made our first trip to the United States. We bought a car in New York and we drove across the U.S. from N.Y. to San Francisco. We went to places like New Orleans and Albuquerque. We visited several Indian pueblos, where Diego started to make sketches of the Indians, because he thought they had very interesting faces.”
