This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in San Francisco, CA on May 5, 1904. Puccinelli began art training at age 15 at the CSFA and the Schaeffer School of Design. While in Italy in 1927, he studied ancient Italian sculpture (Romanesque, Gothic, and late Renaissance) which affected his future work. After a year of studying in France and Italy with various craftsmen, he returned to San Francisco to assist in the studio of J. Vieira and study under Benny Bufano. During the decade 1930-40, he was most influenced by Mexican artist Diego Rivera. In the 1940s he maintained a studio in San Francisco's Chinatown at 15 Hotaling Place and taught sculpture at both UC Berkeley and Mills College in Oakland. He continued teaching at those schools until 1948 when he moved to Flushing, NY to teach at Queen's College. He later taught in Baltimore at the Rinehart School of Sculpture until 1960. He then moved to Florence, Italy where he remained until his death in May 1986. His work, mostly in bronze, was a link between older figurative sculptors such as Rodin and the new figuratives of the post-abstract period. He also worked in unglazed terra cotta, wood, and stone.
