This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Beniamino Bufano was widely recognized for his skilled craftsmanship and unique designs in sculpture. He worked on a grand scale, creating pieces that had mass and stature always with smooth edges and slick surfaces.

Bufano was born in San-Fele, Italy in 1898, but moved to New York City with his family when he was still very young. Although he was educated by private tutors in his childhood, Bufano went on to study art at the Art Students League in New York in 1913. There he studied under Paul Manship, Herbert Adams and James L. Fraser.

In 1915, he relocated to San Francisco, California and from there he traveled to Europe, China and India returning in 1921. Bufano picked up new ideas and techniques on his travels, especially in China where he learned about ceramic as a sculptural medium.

Back in the United States he was working in ceramic before it even became fashionable. In 1923, he was teaching at the San Francisco Institute of Art and was fired for his progressive views on art. He eventually accepted teaching positions, in the 1960's, at the University of California Berkeley and the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California. He died a famous, local sculptor in San Francisco, California in 1970.

His work has been exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Art in 1935, 1936, and 1937, the Arden Galleries in New York in 1925, and the Oakland Museum in 1974.
