Buffet Bernard
(1928—1999)

Buffet Bernard(1928—1999)

Bernard Buffet was an acclaimed artist by the age of twenty on account of his distinctive style and apparent talent. He worked as a painter, etcher, lithographer, designer, and sculptor and produced religious pieces, landscapes, portraits and still-lifes. Buffet’s work had a consistent somber mood that seemed to represent the atmosphere of the post-war period. His success skyrocketed in the 1950’s, and he then received an overflow of commissions. Consequently, his work took on a more decorative approach and lost the impact that made him famous in the first place. Buffet committed suicide in 1999.
