ARTIST BIO

Bernard Buffet was a French painter of Expressionism and a member of the anti-abstract art group L'homme Témoin.

The Buffet style of Expressionism defined is a bold, graphic mastery of technique outlined with thick line and inspiring an almost graphic animation. It was a style not in vogue in Buffet’s time and the commentators who viewed and discussed it were angry and cruel. Buffet also depicted scenes with alienation, sexual ambiguity and wartime violence. Critics were taken aback by his images of flowers and clowns and crossdressers demonstrating the same style he used on table lamps and ashtrays.

Speaking about Bernard Buffet today has a different ring however. Buffet had such an innovative approach and a striking intensity of art that Fabrice Hergott, director of today’s Musée d’Art Moderne says, “Buffet has painted hundreds of masterpieces," he said. “His œuvre is one of the greatest of the 20th century."

    la pieza muy buena, el único problema es que al pedir desde usa te cobran en aduana el 21% IVA + 10% aranceles + gastos de gestión, casi el 40% adicional del coste de la pieza

    It was delivered and signed for by M. Seaoun and you leave ME negative comment? What is wrong with people on this site!? I didn't deliver it! I shipped it properly and have no control over the delivery. Check the tracking, this was delivered. For the ONE DOLLAR you spent I can see why you're so upset.
  • Excellent!
