Enrico Vannucci (1900 - 1990)
Etcher and painter Enrico Vannuccini began his career as an illustrator for an advertising agency in Milan and subsequently moved to Rome, where he met several leading artists. While Vannuccini also produced larger format etchings and paintings, he is best remembered for his bookplate designs, which he executed on commission from many of the leading collectors and bibliophiles of the era. Vannuccini ultimately settled in Griante, Italy and lived and worked there for the rest of his life.
