SAME GIRL? LOOKS LIKE IT!

Ragazza Con Cappello and Girl with Black Hat

Ragazza Con Cappello (left)  and Girl with Black Hat (right) both by Diego Voci

Both Diego paintings bought in Stuttgart in the month of May 1975.  We know who owns the silver framed version “Girl with Black Hat” (50x60cm oil on canvas), Mary Trimmins.  Mary started the first website for internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci in 2008, here is the link: http://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-antonio-diego-voci-3984818.html

But where is the girl in the gold frame? “Ragazza Con Cappello” (50x60cm oil on canvas), purchased by EDWARD DZANIS May 31, 1975.

Diego is known as “The Artist of a Thousand Faces”.  In this case it looks like 2 versions of the same beautiful lady.

Let us hear from you.

Helga Voci shares from her Photo Album…

Just received on Facebook Messenger from Helga images of old photographs from an art show that took place 1983 or 84 at La Bella Casa Restaurant in Kaiserslautern.

This is one of many art shows Diego had at restaurants.  Diego loved gathering around people, food, and selling his works of art.

Update:

Diego Voci AHAH! Kami Cooprider here! I came in this afternoon and saw this great post. It looked familiar. Voila! Carole Hackenbeck and her hubby Claude own it. Here is what she wrote to us late last year: “Hi, my husband is number 8 of a 10 children family. Number 7, his brother Michel was a major in the Canadian air-force and was stationed in Germany for a few years and he bought this painting! Unfortunately he died of a massive heart attack in September 1988 at the age of 39!! Our third son was born on September 30th 1988 which is the date of Diego Voci’s passing [Actual date of Death is August 10, 1985]!! His parents cherished this painting and when both were diseased the 9 siblings had a drawing to share the objects that everyone wanted and my husband won the painting which we love and reminds us of his closest brother!!!” and here is the Index card with Helga Voci handwritten info on Major Michel Lambert, Claude’s brother. Our Diego Voci Project Team will continue posting more of the the ‘lost’ paintings! Greetings from the DVP, Coop, Stephen Max and Lisa Camargo
