Claude Vénard Paintings

French, 1913-1999

Claude Vernard was born in 1913 into a business family from Burgogne.

At the age of 17 he began to take evening classes in painting at the Ecole des Arts Appliques. However, after six years of conscientious study he spent most of 1936 working as a restorer at the Louvre Museum in order to support himself.
This experience did however prove extremely beneficial as it filled Vernard's gaps in his artistic education.

It wasn't until after the second world war that this artist began to get some recognition, but that recognition allowed Vernard to take up painting full-time.

This artist had a post-cubist compositional style and he progressively accentuated the chromatism of his pallet up to reaching the crudest of colours, which he used in very thick forms and sometimes applied upon canvas with a pallet knife.
