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.

Scattered throughout the social media you will discover several “Dining with Diego” experiences. See  more: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page10.html#97229

THE BEGINNING OF ADDICTION TO DIEGO VOCI ART

Patti and Coop Cooprider Madonna & Child, 1966

Patti and Coop Cooprider Madonna & Child, 1966

1966, a young married couple, Americans living in Germany, bought their first “expensive” Diego Voci painting, “Madonna and Child”.  They bought it for $150 on layaway, 3 payments. That was a big chunk of their small budget at the time.

The artist Diego Voci was represented by Joy Gibson, a Canadian art dealer operating out of Zweibrucken, partnering with Dr. Jawdat Naffouj.

The Coopriders, Coop (he’s the skinny one on the left 6’2”) and Patti just could not stop at one (The Potato Chip Phenomenon).  They knew Diego and Helga through the years buying many more Diego’s.

Coop became the volunteer Diego Voci Historian in 1973 and began the volunteer Diego Voci Project in 2010, a property of the Diego Voci Estate, and in 2011 began the official Diego Voci Archive to search for and catalog all the lost Diego oil paintings scattered around the world.  We’ve identified approximately 1,000 of 4,000 so far.
