Diego Voci; Paintings (unknown Collectors or Titles to works)
These images come from a #box of #photos that Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, sent to us from #Germany.
One by one, members of (The Diego Voci Project) post these images on #social #media with the hope to locate the whereabouts of these #lost paintings. With a #vacuum of no information from 1985-2007, all 4000 #oil #paintings by Diego Voci were out in the world somewhere.
Collectors who purchased from Diego before he passed away (in 1985) were enamored by the #magnetism of Diego and his works.
Actually it was a #legal steal auctioned on April 30 2016 at a price way to low! Estimate was $300-$500 for this #gouache signed Diego Voci 30” x 25” framed.

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.
