Alessandra and Pallina PastelsHelga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, shares these precious phrases from Diego about their daughter Alessandra when she was a little girl;

“He (Diego) always would say to Alessandra – “Pallina Mia” (Little Ball), he loved her very much, he would go to Italy once a year and buy beautiful dresses, coats and shoes in expensive boutiques for Alessandra, this was his (Diego’s) biggest pleasure!”

#DINING WITH #DIEGO… SURROUNDED BY #ART

Jeune Fille avec Fleurs #10802-106 front index card Danghuzzi - Copy

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

“YOU ALREADY POSTED THIS DIEGO!”

Close, but no cigar.  The link you are referring to is https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2017/06/06/where-is-this-little-gem-now .  The haystacks there, are in the middle of the landscape and here the haystacks are on the right.

As with many master painters, Diego Voci would return to variations of favorite subjects.  (Claude Monet did hundreds of haystacks) This beautiful rendered Diego piece was purchased in Pirmasens, Germany by Signore Barcchetti on 31 March 1980 for $680.

La Muse et Le Poet, and a Box of old Polaroid Images

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci (1920-85), sent the Diego Voci Project Team a box of old faded polaroid images of oil paintings by Diego.   Sifting thru hundreds, we came across this index card with the image of “La Muse et Le Poet”, the number of the painting, dimensions, year of purchase and the collector who purchased.

The team recognized the name as one of Diego’s collectors, The Halsavers wrote an excerpt on their Diego Voci collection:

We have about 10 Diego’s works and treasure them.  In fact, will still have the receipts for most all.  We visited him in his home and he has joined us for a bottle of wine at ours in Stuttgart in the mid-70’s.  Christine Khan, who displayed Diego’s works in her Wiesbaden studio, joined us maybe a half dozen times, too.  We have a folder of Diego’s promotional materials and ads from various handouts as well as newspaper articles about him.  His house had a dozen or more New Mexico magazines scattered about and as we had moved from New Mexico to Stuttgart, we talked of his time there and how we loved his realistic pastels of Indians that we bought.  We are glad that you have taken the initiative to honor Diego works on this site.  

The Diego Voci Project Team is presently cataloging all of Diego Voci’s works of art into the Diego Voci Estate Archive.

This is a message to the Halsavers and others to send the Diego Voci Project Team images of your Diego works.  Visit www.diegovociproject.com or email us at diegovociproject@gmail.com.  We are excited to receive your images.  Google “Diego Voci”, and click Images. Amazing!

WHERE IS THIS LITTLE GEM NOW?

Haystacks

On October 30, 1976 in Wiesbaden, Germany, a William Burdümy purchased this Diego Voci (1920-85) painting titled “Haystacks“.  This painting was painted in Diego’s home studio where Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, still lives today.
