HOUSTON – Harris County resident Robert Jacob Voskuhl accuses an art business and its proprietor of defrauding him out of nearly $30,000.
Voskuhl sued DMason Art, LLC and Desmond Mason in the Harris County 295th District Court on June 11, claiming the defendants failed to deliver two pieces of artwork to him.
The original petition explains that the parties entered into an agreement last year in which the respondents agreed to sell artwork to Voskuhl.
Mason purportedly divulged to the plaintiff that he “was in need of some cash” and told him piece styled “Original Salvador Dali” was valued more than $100,000.
Voskuhl paid $25,000 for the artwork, but the defendants did not send it to him, court documents say. He adds another piece he put $4,000 down for was also not delivered.
Consequently, the complainant seeks $29,000 in damages.
He is represented by K. Mark Vincent and Susan O. Simpson of the law firm Vincent Sarafino Geary Waddell Jenevein, P.C. in Dallas.
