Anselmo Bucci

Sorelle brianzole, 1932 (Art collections of Fondazione Cariplo)

Anselmo Bucci (Fossombrone 25 May 1887 – 19 November 1955 Monza) was an Italian painter and printmaker.


Having attended the Brera Academy in Milan from 1904 to 1905, Bucci moved to Paris with Leonardo Dudreville in 1906. As a painter of Symbolist works with marked Fauvist overtones, he made his debut at the Salon des Art Décoratifs in 1907 and took part in the Salon des Indépendants from 1910 on. He enlisted in the Volunteer Cyclist Battalion in 1915 and his first solo show (Milan, Famiglia Artistica, 1915) took place while he was on leave. He fell in with the movement for a “return to order” in the post-war period and took part in the Venice Biennale, first at the 12th Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte di Venezia in 1920 and then again in 1924, on which occasion one of his works was bought for the city’s gallery of modern art. One of the founding members of the Sette pittori del Novecento, he took part in the group’s first show in 1926 but not the second. During the 1930s, when he divided his time between Milan and Paris, Neoclassical rigidity gave way to greater freedom in his painting. It was in 1938 that he produced the fresco Italian Civilisation Putting an End to Slavery for the Palazzo di Giustizia in Milan.
