The significance of a chimney sweep” brings good luck in Germany.  When the chimney was stopped up, the man in black had to be called in to clear the flue so you could finally cook your food again. A clean sweep also reduced the risk of setting the house on fire. So to this day we consider it good luck to see a chimney sweep.”

Diego, love of food as an Italian, seems to capture people with their emotions and a relation to food.

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

“PLAYING CHILDREN”… WHERE IS IT NOW?

Playing Children #4812-149 oil on canvas 60 x 80 in

“PLAYING CHILDREN” by Diego Voci #4812-149, Oil on canvas 60x80cm

 “Playing Children” arrived from Germany, spring of 1981, in a shipment of several Diego Voci paintings for consignment with Stephen Max in Canada.  Diego Voci was exclusively represented by Stephen Max in Canada.  He was the gateway to Diego Voci’s limelight in Canada.  “Playing Children” was shipped for a major showing thru Van Zoolingen Gallery in Edmonton.  This particular painting was sold for $1250 within weeks of its arrival in Canada.

Diego, childlike, most of his life, enjoyed the sense of play in all that he did day to day.  His daughter Alessandra was 7 years old when this artwork was done in “Playing Children”, Diego captures the spirit of emotions from the inspiration he pulled from where ever he was.  Note the hula hoop.
