Savor Our Buffet![session]
2023.Apr.1(sat) to Nov.7(tue)
After the end of World War II, a young painter blazed like a comet across the world of French art. His colors, black contours, incised like scars from wounds in the picture plane, the deeply creased faces and thin, elongated figures, the uncanny placement of objects, the towns with no people . . . his paintings were filled with the emptiness and nihilism of the post-war period. Once seen, they were unforgettable. This style, established before Bernard Buffet turned twenty, made him a truly “one-and-only” artist. Every work of his all through his life as a painter was shot through with his “Buffet style.” We would like you to savor all the flavors of Buffet’s art, life, and character.
