SAME GIRL? LOOKS LIKE IT!

Ragazza Con Cappello and Girl with Black Hat

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.

Memories of Menorca (1976) on Diego’s Birthday

Birthdays came and went in Diego’s world however one year Helga planned a special surprise.  Helga invited her parents, Christine Khan and her children, Alessandra was 2 years old at the time, and they all flew to an island off the south of Spain, Menorca.

They rented an apartment and to celebrate Diego’s birthday.  Friends and family gathered around the garden to celebrate Diego with lobsters and fun festivities.  Diego loved camaraderie and even played cards with the fisherman.

While there on Menorca, Diego captured ideas in his mind and here are two examples of sketches (one of 2 year old daughter Alessandra in the yard) were inspired by his birthday celebration.

Helga Voci recalls, “The buyer may have been a German Doctor.”  No name is on the index card.  Siegfred Dahms owner of Galerie Dahms said this about Diego;

“DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people.  They understand, they get excited about and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art.   The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immerse that people gradually acquire more and more of his work.  DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”
