About the Item

Young Lady, Impressionist Portrait, Oil Painting, Signed By French artist Claude Benard, (1926 - 2016) Signed by the artist on right hand corner Oil painting on board, unframed Board size: 16 x 13 inches Lovely portrait of a young lady, we believe 1940's as the artist has a few paintings of this particular style and one was dated '1943'. She is dressed in quite modest clothing, with a chic shorter haircut (which became a fashion statement in the 1930's). Her face is very angelic, with a hopeful expression. Again, the colour palette is extraordinarily elegant, with a lovely soft grey background and her clothes being a deep inky navy blue. This artist is incredible with his use of colour. Claude Benard was born in Cholet in 1926 but shortly after his family moved to Angouleme (1928), where he was to live until his death in 2016. Studying at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and also in the studios of Cheyssial and Fougerat. At the age of 21, he began exhibiting at the Salon des Artistes Francais. After time traveling to broaden his artistic experience he returned to his home town to continue painting professionally. He became a Professor at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Angouleme from 1957-1980. Benard exhibited with numerous prestigious institutions throughout France and abroad, including the Salon des Artistes Francais, Salon des Independants and the Salon d'Automne, Paris. He was the holder of more than seventy awards. In 1978, he founded the Cercle Angoumousin des Arts and in 1979 organised a Salon of Contemporary Art in Angouleme bringing together celebrated artists from the Charente region. His style evolved from figurative in the 1960's, through to Surrealism into the 1970's and onwards. Four tribute exhibitions of his works were held in Angouleme in 1972, 1984, 2001 and 2017. This is one of many paintings we have by this artist, please contact if you wish to view more. provenance: the artists estate, France Condition report: The painting and canvas are both in very pleasing condition.
