The not-for-profit Diego Voci Project is searching for the lost paintings of internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).  This is only one of couple thousand “Diegos’” to be found.  It was purchased by Eugene Alfaro April 4, 1977.

Our long term goal is a major museum exhibition.  Thus we have a “Buy or Borrow” program for the best of the best.  As the original collectors have passed on, Diego art pieces have shown up everywhere from Belgium to Lithuania, from a garage sale to under somebody’s bed.  Here is a terrific find that was purchased for 97¢!  https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page4.html#62739
