Helga Voci recalls, “The buyer may have been a German Doctor.”  No name is on the index card.  Siegfred Dahms owner of Galerie Dahms said this about Diego;

“DIEGO is one of the few artistic personalities whose paintings really appeal to people.  They understand, they get excited about and they really enjoy living with DIEGO’s art.   The beauty of his paintings and the desire of possession are often so immerse that people gradually acquire more and more of his work.  DIEGO buyers soon become DIEGO collectors.”

NOT ACCURATE! CHECK YOUR “FACTS” ABOUT DIEGO VOCI!

eBay ad falsely stated by a seller in Swanton, Vermont stated:

“THIS DRAWING IS FROM THE LATE 50’S EARLY 60’S”

DIEGO VOCI SIGNED DRAWING (AUTHENTIC) EBAY image for post March 22 2017

NON ACCURATE.

FACT: Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) did not sign his works “Diego” until the last half of the 1960’s when Canadian art dealer Joy Gibson – Naffouj began representing the artist.  It was through the encouragement of Joy and her husband Dr. Jawdat Naffouj that the Diego signature took hold.  Before that all the art works were signed some form of VOCI.  (See 1965 ad in Zurich newspaper https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2014/11/28/attention-look-for-voci-not-diego/

During the time Naffouj was selling works signed “Diego” Galerie Dahms in Wiesbaden continued to sell works to the upscale German market signed some form of “Voci”.

NOTE: We can find no evidence that the Diego Voci Project Team was the source of this misinformation.
