Bugatti, A family with Creativity and Talent in their blood!


The Bugatti name is famous for the luxury race car but members of the family were also sculptors with the patriarch being an art nouveau furniture maker where much of his work wouldn’t be out of place in the Game of Thrones.  See below

Carlos Bugatti (1856-1940) was born in Milan, Italy and died in France.  He attended Brera’s Fine Art Academy in Milan and enrolled in L’ Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris.

Carlos Bugatti worked in architecture, interiors, ceramics, jewelry, musical instruments, paintings, racing bikes, silverware, and textiles - as well as the
furniture for which he is best known. 

As a stylist he was highly individualistic, though drawing on Gothic, Moorish and Oriental influences.

His youngest son, Rembrandt Bugatti (1884-1916) became a famous sculptor of animals which he lovingly rendered in bronze from visits to the Antwerp Zoo, then the leading zoo in Europe, which he visited almost daily on and off for eight years.

Ettore Arco Isidoro Bugatti (1881 –1947) the elder son was a designer and manufacturer. He is remembered as the founder and proprietor of the famous automobile company.
