Claude Benard Art

French, 1926-2016

Claude Benard was born in Cholet in 1926, but shortly afterward, his family moved to Angoulême (1928), where he was to live until his death in 2016. Benard studied at the École 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 Français. After some time spent traveling to broaden his artistic experience, he returned to his hometown to continue painting professionally. He became a professor at the Ecole des beaux-arts in Angoulême from 1957–80. Benard exhibited with numerous prestigious institutions throughout France and abroad, including the Salon des Artistes Français, Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d'Automne, Paris. He was the recipient of more than 70 awards. In 1978, he founded the Cercle Angoumousin des Arts and in 1979 organized a Salon of Contemporary Art in Angoulême, bringing together celebrated artists from the Charente region. His style evolved from figurative in the 1960s to Surrealism into the 1970s and onwards. Four tribute exhibitions of his works were held in Angoulême in 1972, 1984, 2001 and 2017.

Stunning signed landscape oil on canvas circa 1920 by French post impressionist painter Georges D'Espagnat. This good-sized piece depicts garden filled with blue, red, pink and purple flowers. Signature: Signed lower left Dimensions: Framed: 39"x46.5" Unframed: 32"x39.5" Provenance: Galerie Des Granges - Geneva - May 1982 Christie's - London 21st June 1993 A certificate of authenticity for this work from Mr. Jean-Dominique Jacquemond is available upon request This work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne of the work of Georges D'Espagnat under preparation br Mr. Jacquemond From the beginning of his career it was a constant concern of Georges d'Espagne to assert his originality. His studies at the École des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, did not last very long, for he wanted immediate independence and decided to follow courses in the private academies of Montparnasse. In about 1900, he became acquainted with Maurice Denis, Bonnard and Vuillard, and his collaboration with Denis led to a renewal of religious art in France. In 1903, d'Espagne was one of the founders of the Salon d'Automne, and was appointed professor in charge of studios at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 1934. He illustrated a number of books: Rémy de Gourmont...

Spring Blossom Impression by Swedish Plein Air Artist Anders Ståhl
Located in Stockholm, SE
Anders Ståhl, Swedish painter, born 1966. Since modernism, outdoor painting has largely been forgotten by professional painters, but the Swedish artist Anders Ståhl keeps the historical tradition of Plein Air alive. Not least when it comes to partly lost working methods in the field. For Anders, this has been a most natural way of creating since childhood; to interpret what he sees and feels, by drawing and painting.  Quickly capturing impressions in the field is one of the most demanding ways of painting you can imagine, since you are simultaneously fighting against both time and the elements. Back in the comfort of the studio, there is so much more time to interpret and perhaps work with larger formats. Anders has a strong artistic relationship with painters from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, especially the French impressionists and Nordic landscape...
