This painting, was listed on The Diego Voci Project website as “Not for Sale”.
Stephen & Wendy Max (volunteers for the Diego Voci Project Team) were immediately attracted to this portrait of two young women-with dark blank eyes, sensuous lips without a smile -conveying a message of noble beauty. Eventually and gratefully we were able to convince Helga to part with her treasured painting.
When Stephen & Wendy Max finally received the painting we asked Helga why “Deux Filles au Bleu” meant so much to her, here is her response:
Dear Stephen and Wendy,
I am happy that you like the painting and I know that with you it is in good hands and that you really appreciate it. The story about it is that when we lived in Wiesbaden between 1965 and 1970 we went one time to Prague where we went several times because we both liked the City and we always went through little antique shops, they had many there and we found this beautiful frame and Diego said- I will paint you a beautiful painting for this frame and that was -Deux filles au bleu- and I loved it and carried it where ever we moved. …Helga Voci
