About

Colourful Still Life, Impressionist Oil Painting, Signed By French artist Claude Benard, (1926 - 2016) Signed by the artist on the lower right hand corner Oil painting on board, unframed Board size: 11.5 x 13.5 inches Rich and colourful still life of some prized possessions of this French artist. An eclectic group of items, a peach coloured single rose, a book, and a vase with a red drape behind. The colour palette ranges from indian yellow to greens and reds. This fine oil painting displays the artists incredible talent for colour and detailing. Showing the precise details such as the picture painted on the vase, the book spine and such forth. A lovely oil painting that I imagine would sit well in a study or perhaps a drawing room. 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 board are both in very pleasing condition.
