Bernard Buffet
Legendary artist
  • 1 works

Bernard Buffet is a French painter of the second half of the 20th century, considered as "expressionist miserabilist" because of his singular style drawn from the daily life of the most modest. Illustrator, watercolorist, popular and prolific sculptor, he is one of the few artists of his time to achieve international recognition during his lifetime. Bernard Buffet was born on July 10, 1928 in Paris. He spent his childhood on the rue des Batignolles in Paris. A precocious artist, he won the entrance exam to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts at the age of 15, and became a professional at 18.

Very quickly in 1947, the National Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris gave him his first commission.

A spectacular start to his career, which this 27 year old prodigy confirmed by obtaining first place in the referendum of the magazine "Connaissance des arts" (1955). In 1951, Bernard Buffet became friends with Jean Giono, Jean Cocteau, Louis Aragon, Georges Simenon, Pierre Bergé and Maurice Druon who wrote a biography of him in 1964. In 1958, Bernard Buffet met Annabel Schwob, who became his muse and whom he married (two daughters were born of this union, Virginie in 1962, Danielle in 1963). Elected to the Academy of Fine Arts in 1974.
