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.
Diego Voci; “Dorf auf Menorca” 60 x 80 cm. Helga Voci, widow of Diego, made the frame. (faded polaroid image of this painting)
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.
