Guido Colucci (1877-1949) was a master draftsman, designer, and painter who studied with Giovanni Fattori, the renowned Macchiaioli artist. Colucci's works are in many important public and private collections, including the Gabinetto di Disegni e Stampe of the Uffizi and the Museum of Bastia, Corsica. This limited edition was printed by the artist and master printer Gary Lissa expressly for this exhibition. Unframed prints from this commemorative edition may be purchased. A full color catalog is also available. All proceeds go to the SACI Scholarship Fund.
