Diego Voci; “COMPOSITION A LA PLAGE” #261-4467 oil on canvas 60x50cm
Christine Khan, (owner of “Composition a La Plage“) shares words on her DIEGO Collection:
“Each piece either been given to me as a gift or a purchase. There is a story behind each one. Each piece is so different & unique. I live with them. They each have a certain place in my home. No reason to sell. DIEGO was intelligent, interesting, engaged in mind discussions, and had a sense of humor. Prior to my representing Diego for 10 years, I had a friendship with Helga & Diego. Diego wanted to paint what he liked.”
Diego Voci; “Deux Filles au Bleu” 50x60cm oil on canvas ca. 1968
This painting, was listed on The Diego Voci Project website as “Not for Sale”.
Stephen & Wendy Max (volunteers for the Diego Voci Project Team) were immediately attracted to this portrait of two young women-with dark blank eyes, sensuous lips without a smile -conveying a message of noble beauty. Eventually and gratefully we were able to convince Helga to part with her treasured painting.
When Stephen & Wendy Max finally received the painting we asked Helga why “Deux Filles au Bleu” meant so much to her, here is her response:
Dear Stephen and Wendy, I am happy that you like the painting and I know that with you it is in good hands and that you really appreciate it. The story about it is that when we lived in Wiesbaden between 1965 and 1970 we went one time to Prague where we went several times because we both liked the City and we always went through little antique shops, they had many there and we found this beautiful frame and Diego said- I will paint you a beautiful painting for this frame and that was -Deux filles au bleu- and I loved it and carried it where ever we moved. …Helga Voci
