Helga Voci, Diego’s #widow thought the date of painting to be “time of #Naffouj Galerie or before”. Actually it was not. There were no paintings signed “Diego™” until Dr. Jawdat Naffouj and Joy Naffouj made a #contract, that’s when the “Diego” signature began. This artwork was after Naffouj probably sold by Galerie Dahms. Our records at the DiegoVoci™ Archive notes Diego experimented with everything; cooked #glass paint, #sand based canvas and yes, #roller brush. The Diego™ gouache was done circa 1973, a time when he experimented with a small roller brush, typical for painting walls.
“Three Children” is another roller brush example, signed Diego, Schwetzingen* 1973.
(*Their home/studio near Mannheim and Heidelberg).
The Diego Voci Project is amazed that some wonderful Diego oil paintings are still being discovered for as little as a $1000 and sometimes less. It’s a “Buyers” Market for Diego and it’s time to consider Diego paintings as an investment.
