Item description for Bernard Buffet: The Secret Studio by Jean-Claude Lamy...
This book provides an insider view of the artist's creative universe through photographs taken by life-long friends and observers of Buffet, one of the most significant artists of postwar Paris. Bernard Buffet was astonishingly prolific, producing over eight thousand oil paintings, sketches, watercolors, lithographs, and engravings before his tragic suicide in 1999. This intimate album of the artist at work in his studio traces his steps from the 1940s to the 1970s, from the savage coasts of Brittany to glittering St. Tropez, where he met and married his wife Annabel. With unique insight into the artist's interests and influences-from the French primitives of Avignon to Flemish painting and Courbet-this book constitutes the only publication available today on Buffet's life and work.
