From April 5th to May 27th, 2017, VENUS presents Bernard Buffet: Paintings from 1956 to 1999, an exhibition of important and historic works by the late figurative painter. It is comprised of thirteen paintings from exceptional moments in Buffet’s career. 
This exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Estate of Bernard Buffet, marks the first solo presentation of Buffet’s work in New York in nearly three decades. The paintings at VENUS demonstrate Buffet’s unflinching devotion to figurative painting in the face of countervailing developments in abstraction during the 20th century.

Bernard Buffet was born in Paris in 1928, and enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts at the age of sixteen. Between 1946 and 1948, Buffet’s work was included in the Salon de Moins de Trente Ans, the Salon d’Automne, and the Salon des Indépendants. In 1947, his painting Le Coq mort was purchased for the Musée National d’Art Moderne, making him the youngest artist ever to have work acquired by the French state. In 1948, Buffet was awarded the inaugural Prix de la Critique. Between the years 1949 and 1999, Buffet mounted over fifty solo exhibitions in Paris. His work has been the subject of numerous international retrospectives. He lived and worked in Tourtour, France, until his death in 1999.
