In 1943, Bernard Buffet attended an evening course in drawing run by the municipality of Paris. In January 1944 he entered the Narbonne studio of the École Supérieure de Beaux-Arts, Paris, where he studied for two years. He received advice from Othon Friesz and met Jean Aujame and Claude Venard. Bernard Buffet subordinated choice of subject to the treatment that was crucial in his relationships with a wide public and the newspaper criticism that popularised him.

It was a style that was instantly recognizable, independently of the equally stylized signature. It ensured his success with an ever-growing public that did not have access to the larger paintings of his annual thematic exhibitions. From 1947, he had a solo show in Paris annually, and from 1952 he painted a series of large canvases each year on a different theme for an exhibition that became a tradition of the Paris art season: 1952 ...

Aristide Caillaud started life as a shepherd and later became a butcher. He was taken prisoner in Germany during World War II and it was there that he first embarked on an artistic career, decorating the walls of the barracks where he was held in a bid to recapture scenes from his past and give expression to his sense of loss. On his release and return to France, he devoted himself to painting.

In ...
