A Tribute to Albert J. Pucci


Albert J. Pucci was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1920.  When he was three years old his parents moved to Brooklyn, New York, where he resided until his death in 2005.  He married in 1955 and raised three children with his wife Gora.  He and his family began summering in Maine in the mid 1950s. 

Mr. Pucci attended the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Arts at age ten and graduated from Pratt Institute in 1942.  He later taught courses at Pratt in Layout and Design and The Nude Figure for twenty-four years.

Mr. Pucci enjoyed a prolific and versatile career.  He worked in Renaissance, Neo Realism and Cubism styles, in mediums including oil, watercolor, tempera and charcoal.  His striking still-lifes, landscapes and portraiture embrace themes from joyous to melancholy and depict locales such as Italy, Brooklyn and coastal Maine.  Mr. Pucci also enjoyed and excelled in the challenges of the commercial field, creating numerous book covers, magazine illustrations and postcards.

Mr. Pucci's works hang in museums and private collections worldwide and have been honored with awards from the National Academy of Design and National Audubon Society.

Albert Pucci was an artist all his life, painting the world around him with an eye that recognized the beautiful in the ordinary.
