In September of 1980 at Galerie Dahms on the prestigious Wilhelmstrasse of #Wiesbaden, #Germany, someone unknown person paid 3,100 Deutsche Marks for this fairly large painting by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).

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.”

#GALERIE DAHMS (#WIESBADEN, #GERMANY)

Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, found two (not very clear) images she took of the Galerie Dahms, about 1983, each with a DIEGO painting in the window.

Look closely and you can see the reflection of Helga in the glass standing outside shooting the photo. It indicates not only how big the DIEGO painting is to the left of Helga but also how high the Galerie ceiling is.

The Galerie was located on the classy #Wilhelmstrasse of Wiesbaden. The DIEGO / Dahms relationship based on a handshake, lasted nearly 2 decades.
