About

Claude Venard was born in France 1913 and dedicating himself fully to painting at the age of seventeen he studied at the Ecole des Arts Appliques for six years, having fled the Academie des Beaux-Arts after just 48 hours. In 1938 he signed the Rupture manifesto and participated in the first exhibition of the influential group Forces Nouvelles, alongside Gruber and Tal-Coat at the Galerie Billiet-Vorms. A close affinity subsequently developed among these painters and together they were instrumental in forging the aesthetic of the immediate post-war period of the Ecole de Paris. Venard quickly became known for his rich impasto and varying texture. Venard received critical acclaim and was personally championed by Andre Salmon and Waldemar George, who described his painting as “Apocalyptic art! Beings and everyday things suddenly regain their meaning. Emotional values are once more felt” Venards distinct and alluring compositions developed through a post-cubist system that oscillates between abstraction and naturalism.. He opens up perspectives projecting spatial vistas into every part of the canvas, in accordance with an emotional rather than a physical rder. Familiar objects arise in the midst of a network of striations and hatching. Colours grow more intense in certain zones to stress the solidity of the composition; in other zones the light is more tenuous and diaphanous, as if to indicate space of different emotional intensity.
