At age sixteen Marco Bronzini was introduced to British sculptor John Skeaping (1901-1980). While in residence at Skeaping’s home in Provence, he studied painting, sculpture, and encountered artists such as Henry Moore, a life long friend of Skeaping and Barbara Hepworth, Skeaping’s first wife. He was accepted on a four year scholarship to the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 1975. Bronzini went from provincial Beaucaire, his hometown in the South of France, to London, England, the art world center in the mid 1970’s, and within the next few years he would meet people like the Astors and great art collectors like Paul Mellon.
Bronzini has lived and worked in Germany, England, Scotland, France and the United States.
His paintings are found in many Private Collections worldwide, including: The Paul Mellon Collections, The Astor family, The Marks (Marks & Spencer) family, The Guinness and The Bulmer families. His work is contained in the Permanent Collection of the Cornell Museum of Fine Arts, Orlando, Florida and the Morse Museum of American Art, Winter Park, Florida. The Marco Bronzini Art School & Studio was established in 2001.
