“I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIS (DIEGO’S) PAINTINGS!”

Diego Voci; Red Boat oil on canvas

Diego Collector; Norm Hershfield shares his own personal experience with how he collected Diego artworks;

I never really met Diego. I fell in love with his (Diego) paintings, when I saw them at Dino’s Restaurent (a favorite restaurant of Diego Voci’s Art Historian, Coop Cooprider) and the Ramsteiner Hof. I also frequented Herr Dahm’s Gallery in Wiesbaden for many years. I bought mine (Diego paintings) from the agent (Christine Khan) who sold them at the Ramstein Officer’s Club and at some of the bazaars.”

#EUROPE 1957

1957 was a very full year, just like every other year was during Diego Voci’s (VOH-chee) lifetime (1920-1985). Diego Voci invited his nephew Tony Voci to travel Europe with him while Tony was stationed in the Armed Services. Here is an excerpt of a great memory:

Tony Voci recalls “Driving with my Uncle Diego, about every hour we would stop at a café for a smoke and espresso. To my surprise, Diego was greeted as “Diego” everywhere. “Diego” was his own celebrity. Diego loved people! And he never stopped drawing, even on napkins.”

#DIEGO WHO?

Gigi, Restaurant La Gondola owner, DIEGO VOCI, Stars & Stripes Reporter

Not Diego, the Game.  Not artists, Diego Riviera or Diego Velázquez.  This is about Diego Voci!

Joy Naffouj, a Canadian Art Dealer met internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985, VOH-chee) in 1966 in Germany.  She was attracted to his strong painting style; very different from her stable of the other artists she represented. He had been signing his great body of work with some form of “Voci”. But everyone knew him as “Diego”.  Joy convinced him to sign his paintings thereafter with the “Diego” signature.

Coop Cooprider spotted “Diego’s” work at an exhibition at her studio in Ramstein, Germany.  Diego also displayed at the Restaurant La Gondola, Gigi, the owner, pictured with Diego and a Stars & Stripes reporter.

DIEGO VOCI PRECURSOR TO #BASQUIAT?

Diego Voci; “Untitled” Abstract oil on canvas ca. 1966

Amazingly this painting by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) appeared this year for sale online for $150. Basquiat aficionados at first sight declared it to be a Basquiat, if so he (Basquiat) would have only been 6 years old. See the (above & below) similar impromptu strokes of the brush bringing unrelated shapes and lines together in a strangely beautiful work of art.

Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) artworks are in demand by the big time art collectors worldwide, selling in the millions of dollars to acquire. Once a lover of #AndyWarhol, Museums covet Basquiat / Warhol collaborative works.

NOTE: Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian, has certified the work shown here as authentic Diego, circa 1966 that’s when Diego left the prestigious Schlossgalerie in Zurich, and moved to Germany, home of his lover and wife to be Helga Drossler. Helga Voci, Diego’s widow still living in Germany confirmed “Yes”, it’s a Diego. He was always experimenting.” There he affiliated with 2 galleries, Naffouj Gallery in Landstuhl and Galerie Dahms in Wiesbaden. The Diego work shown here is one of the very first with the “Diego” signature. Joy Naffouj convinced Diego that since “he” is known by Diego, sign the work “Diego”. Before the “Diego” signature, he signed some form of Voci (https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-history-4330818.html#43343).
