Beniamino Benevento Bufano
Birth: Oct. 15, 1890
Death: Aug. 18, 1970

Sculptor. Born in San Fele, Italy, he was a skilled artist known for his unique designs in sculpture. As a child, he moved with his family to New York City, was educated by private tutors and went on to study art at the New York Art Students League in 1913. He developed his craft on a grand scale, by creating pieces which had mass and stature, with smooth edges and slick surfaces. Many of his works are on permanent display at museums and art gallerys world wide. He also was a professor at the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland and the San Francisco Institute of Art and the University of California, Berkeley. He died at age 79 and crafted a figure of St. Francis of Assisi, for his own grave marker. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
