Artist of the moment……….Xavier Bueno

 

 

 

 

Xavier Bueno was a  fantastic painter working with the figure and typography in his own unique style. Xavier Bueno was born in the year 1915 in Vera Di Bidasoa, Spain. His father was a journalist and writer.

Bueno attended the Academy of San Fernando located in Madrid, Spain. The artist also studied in Geneva, Switzerland.

He had a brother named Antonio who was also an artist.

The works of Bueno that received the best critical acclaim were his paintings of children that took place from 1959 to the mid 1960s. These works have a wonderful artistic appeal as the works show  great design with the occasional typography thrown in. Like a Kathe Kollwitz etching the children’s emotions in these images seem to pour out to the viewer.

 

Xavier Bueno passed away in 1979.

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $100,000. The artist worked mainly in oils.

Bueno is one of my favorite artist’s working with kids and children’s faces. The children are so expressive.
