Out of 4000 thousand paintings created by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee), our mission is to locate one by one with the help of Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, who sent us, Diego Voci Project (www.diegovociproject.com), a shoebox filled with index cards of images & titles, a cataloging system for Diego’s works of art.
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.
The elegant Ristorante “Da Sandro’s” in the Karslruhe Area in Weingarten owned by Sandro is a one of the many restaurants that were close to DIEGO’s heart and stomach that to this day still display his artworks. Diego often went into regions of Germany to have exhibitions at #Italian Restaurants where guests would explore the cuisine as well as the art! #Da Sandro’s still displays this #DIEGO oil painting on the wall of one of the private rooms and believe it to be approx. 31 x 39 inches. His family and friends have more to share with us … look for us at www.diegovociproject.com
