Claude Venard
Fine Works
1950-1965

Having lead the revival in Venard's reputation over the last twenty years, Hanina Fine Arts is delighted to present a selection of masterworks from the artist's oeuvre.

 

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". To experience Venard's work is a rich visceral experience.
