- Glimpse into Buffet's world ... -



Master French painter and printmaker Bernard Buffet achieved recognition as an artist at a very young age. By 1948 he had had his first one-man exhibition and received the Prix de la Critique. In the 1950s, he was considered the principal figurative artist in Paris.

During this period, he was influenced by the miserabilisme movement: his compositions, all greys and dull whites, reflected a sombre mood. Buffet's subjects have tremendous range, especially the later works, and include still-lifes, interior scenes, and views of such cities as New York, Paris, and London. His rigorous gothic art is a reflection of his own personality: individualistic, elegant, sober, solitary, and melancholy.

Buffet's first original lithograph dates from 1952 and from that time he dedicated himself almost exclusively to this demanding artistic medium. Buffet's lithographs have for many years been famous throughout the world.

His work appears in many major museums, including the Tate Gallery in London and the Musee d'Art Moderne.
