Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Xavier Bueno was born in Vera de Bidasoa (Spain) in 1915 and died in Fiesole (Florence, Italy) on July 17th, 1979. He began his studies at the S. Fernando Academy in Madrid, then continued in Geneva, where in 1937 he held his first personal exhibition, with works representing a strong Spanish Realism. This was then followed by further studies under Diase Bianquet at the Grand Caumiere in Paris.

In the forties, together with his brother Antonio, Sciltian and Annigoni, he participated in the group of Modern Realist Painters. From the fifties onward, his paintings are characterised by a Realism with a strong social content and at times are melancholic in nature. Salvatore Quasimodo wrote: “Special attention should be paid to the still life works of Bueno, uplifted into a bottomless space where the depths are created by the rhythm of the objects, subtracted to a metaphysical absence.” The subjects that Bueno took mainly into consideration are portrayed by suffering and melancholy often focusing upon images of women and children.

He found inspiration for his works in the paintings of Goya and Delacroix. He used traditional techniques, as well as a mixed technique of oil and sand on canvas.  He was known to rub elbows with contemporaries including Picasso in the many artist gathering places and cafes in Florence.  The people of the Arno River region truly appreciate Bueno’s work.
