The Diego Voci Project Team received a letter from Diego Collector; Dan Wilking with one of his internationally collected artist Diego Voci (1920-1985) works of art titled “Three Faces“. Here are the words from Dan to Coop Cooprider; Diego Voci Art Historian
“During the period 1970-1973, I was stationed at the 10th Med Lab in Landstuhl (Germany). We purchased several paintings at the Naffouj Gallery in Landstuhl. Yes, Joy Naffouj introduced me to Diego. He was dark of complexion, had shoulder length hair, and wore a neat leather jacket. We exchanged greetings and that was that. The empathy on the faces of the pictured men drew me to it. The Berlin Wall and Russian episode of that time perhaps were an influence. – Dan Wilking”
