George Roberts, shares his story about how he acquired this Diego work of art:

“We have a “nude” painting by Diego that was purchased at the Patch Barracks Officers Club in Germany in the late 1960’s from an American female who told us that this was a painting of Diego’s first wife. We paid $250.00 for the painting which was a lot of money in those days. We did not meet Diego. The painting is oil on canvas and measures approx.31” x 21” in the original frame. There is no title on the back of the canvas however a number 1697-9.” (The number on the back of the canvas represents the timing of the painting was complete)

See here images of Josiane (taken in the 1960’s) to compare with the Diego painting owned by George Roberts.
