ANDREW BUCCI (1922-2014) 

From faces to figures and landscapes to color impressions, Andrew Bucci’s paintings have stood the test of time.  For 8 decades of studying, teaching, traveling and experiencing art of all walks of life, Mr. Bucci separated himself from the pack.  What is it about his work that made him one of the most admired, most collected and most honored of all of Mississippi’s prestigious artists?

In 1984, when Brown’s approached Andrew Bucci about representation in their newly opened gallery, no one could have predicted that he would become Brown’s most prolific and best-selling artist.  Early on in marketing the art of Mr. Bucci, about the only people interested in collecting his unmistakable style were fellow artists who had been around and knew about the many contributions he had made to the art community in Mississippi.  Discussing his style, artists in the know commented on his use of color combinations, how they normally wouldn’t be shown together, but Mr. Bucci did and made them work.  Other artists would discuss his free handed simple style that looks almost child-like but in reality is masterful and impossible to duplicate.

Along the way, Mr. Bucci introduced viewers to Daphne from mythology, Dante’s trip to Hell, numerous Saints, Christ’s resurrection as well as familiar places such as his hometown of Vicksburg, MS, Dover, Delaware, New York City, Chicago and other places he lived or visited.  One of his most memorable and popular series were his Mississippi and Delta cotton landscapes.  One of these paintings was shown at the Lauren Rogers Museum in Laurel, where it garnered national focus from visitors across the country.  Puffy fields of cotton seamlessly become puffy cotton like clouds in that particular painting which defines a trademark of Mr. Bucci’s body of work. 

Throughout his life, Mr. Bucci was able to capture the world around him as seen through the very distinctive and stylish spectacles that were one of his trademarks.  Hairstyles from the fashion models of the 1940’s along with the distinct 40’s dresses are treated with care and beauty by Mr. Bucci, who studied the fashion of the day along with Japanese wood block prints in the 1960’s.  You can see the influence that these blocks had on not only Mr. Bucci’s work but other greats of the day like Matisse. 

In the late 60’s, influences of color from the changing culture made its way into Andrew Bucci’s paintings.  Fiery oranges, greens, reds, purples and floral motifs are just some of the highlights that can be found in his work at this time. 

One of the many joys in collecting the work of a great artist is to buy one from each era and be able to hang them side by side as if they were joined together by a thread of time.  From humble beginnings, Andrew Bucci emerged and flourished at the top of the heap of great Mississippi artists, thanks in part to the great influences he had, but also from a truly God-given talent that has transformed and inspired generations.
