  • Description

    Because it took him less than ten years to achieve fame, Bernard Buffet is undoubtedly the most discussed of contemporary painters.

    The anguish and despair which he expresses in his work are the base of the true vision which he has of things and being, and if he welcomes solitude, it is without doubt because he wanted to analyse and translate without hindrance his anguish.

    On his estate in Aix-en-Provence Buffet pursued his vocation unceasingly, dominated by an urge to paint and transcribe his experiences.

    The series of his canvasses dedicated to the life of Jeanne d'Arc astonished the world of art. Forsaking his clowns, his fish and his landscapes, he set out to tackle large compositions with the ability comparable to the romantic painters.
