On August 8, 1980, Frances Ann Jacobini purchased this attractive Diego Voci (VOH-chee) painting direct from the home / studio of Helga and Diego. This image is from a 37 year old Polaroid Helga found. The card indicates Francis paid $950. It is title “Die Baüerinnen”. Coop Cooprider, the Diego Voci Historian since 1973 said “If these are farm girls, they come from classier farms than any I have seen. It looks like are dressed for a Vogue photoshoot.”
