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.”

MET GETS LOAN OF DA VINCI
“For Leonardo, a painter’s most ambitious goal was to convey a composition with convincing emotion,” said exhibition curator Carmen Bambach. “Few paintings in the history of Western art can elicit such a powerful psychological reaction.” – #ARTNEWS: https://news.artnet.com/exhibitions/leonardo-st-jerome-metropolitan-museum-1594957
Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985) VOH-chee inspired by Leonardo da Vinci to capture powerful emotions in his works of art; see below as an example.
Out of 4000 thousand paintings created by Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985 VOH-chee), our mission is to locate one by one with the help of Helga Voci, widow of Diego Voci, who sent us, Diego Voci Project (www.diegovociproject.com), a shoebox filled with index cards of images & titles, a cataloging system for Diego’s works of art.

Since late 2009, the Diego Voci Project has been in a worldwide search for the best of Diego Voci oil paintings. We just found this “VOCI” masterpiece in Lithuania for $3,500 complete door to door.
This is only the 4th “VOCI” discovered so far from the era of Diego’s connection to the Schlossgalerie (who served a wealthy horse owner clientele) in Zurich advertised as “Antonio Voci”, 1962-1965. It is the first that DVP could acquire for the day a generous benefactor is willing to finance a major Diego Museum Exhibition.
In his early career internationally collected artist Antonio Innocenzo Voci (1920-1985) signed his works some form of VOCI (VOH-chee). He was known his nickname by “Diego”. About 1966 he began using the “Diego” signature through 1985.
Here are the 3 other examples of “VOCI” paintings:

Although everyone called him “Diego” in 1960 he signed Antonio Voci, as in the previous blog containing his registration in #Paris https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/paris-forced-diegovoci-to-register-to-save-helgas-health/ to stay by Helga’s side as she recovered in the Paris Hospital.
Notice the signature on the painting below “D.Voci”, part of the transition from “A. Voci”. Both would vary on Diego’s art until 1965 when he used “Diego” signature for the last 20 years of his life.
Here is a sample of the Moroccan paintings referred to in Helga’s biography https://diegovociproject.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/helga-in-a-paris-bistro/ in the previous blog.
This painting is believed to have been found in a warehouse.
Diego Voci’s Birthplace: Via Regina Elena, 85 Gasperina (CZ) Italy
95 years ago today in a tiny village of Gasperina, Tailor Guiseppe Antonio Voci’s wife Messina Arcangela gave birth to her second of three sons, Antonio Innocenzo Voci, destined to become the internationally collected artist known as “Diego Voci”.
Like his 2 brothers, Diego attended tailoring school in Reggio, learning skills he would apply designing clothes for himself and ladies of his liking, click on link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Diego_Voci#1920.E2.80.931938:_early_life. But art was his true love. “I must to paint”. Diego did not hear his father’s advice “The God of art does not give bread”.
Diego would draw incessantly. 4,000 oil painted canvases and thousands of works on paper. Yet in the elite art world Diego Voci remained unknown. That is beginning to change as his exceptional talent is being discovered by a New Generation. Diego Voci Project is searching for and cataloging Diego’s art in the world’s only Diego Voci Archive. Please help us fine them all.
