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)
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.”
The Diego Voci Project would much appreciate an update on the whereabouts of this Diego work and its owner. Frances Ann Jacobini. Anyone? firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. We are excited to receive your images. Google “Diego Voci”, and click Images. Amazing!
This is a faded Polaroid of a internationally collected artist Diego Voci (1920-85) painting titled: “Don Quichote and Sancho Panza” oil on canvas 60x80cm which was originally purchased about 1975 by Herr Schmalz.
The Diego Voci Project is seeking the whereabouts of Herr Schmalz and this painting.
Helga, widow of Diego, shared with us her memory “as far as I can remember Herr Schmalz was the director of the Canadian Officers Club in Baden Baden, Germany.”
