Claude Venard - Post-Cubism

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 to an almost sculptural level. Described by the critic Waldemar George as “Figurative Abstraction” in 1954, to experience Venard's work is a rich visceral sensation.
