Giuseppe Bacci was born in Bologna in 1921. He began to work as an illustrator after the war in 1945. Bacci's first important work was for 'The Adventures of Pinocchio', 1952. He worked for a diverse range of companies during his career including, Ferrari, Aqua di Parma, (the scent famously worn by Audrey Hepburn and Carry Grant); Cartier, Ducati, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, opera and jazz. Giuseppe Bacci always signed his work: Gius Bacci.
Each of these works shows mastery of line and image. Some are painterly in approach, others reduce the subject to a couple of sinuous stylised lines. He particularly excels at communicating speed and rhythmn. The inventiveness and range of style of this artist is quite phenomenal and we are excited to be able to show a collection of his work.
