Claude Venard (French, 1913-1999)

Claude Venard (1913-1999) was a central figure of the post-war School of Paris and became internationally renowned during the 1950’s for his bold heavily impastoed Post-Cubist paintings, built up through layer upon layer of pigment incorporating different resins and varnishes. In the words of Andre Salmon in 1962 “It is certain the works of Claude Venard are not meant for empty souls or tepid hearts”.
