RÉTROSPECTIVE BERNARD BUFFET 《L’ÉPOQUE QUE J’AI VÉCUE》
Nov 21, 2020 - Jan 24, 2021Prices Vary
The Bunkamura Museum is presenting a retrospective view of the works of figurative, expressionist painter Bernard Buffet. Buffet’s paintings are characterized by his use of dark, angular lines depicting his subjects. Buffet was greatly inspired by post-World War II anxiety and destruction as well as the philosophical movements of his time, particularly Sartre’s existentialism and Camus’ absurdism. The exhibition features around 80 works arranged in chronological order, primarily oil paintings borrowed from the Bernard Buffet Museum in Shizuoka which houses the world’s largest Buffet collection.
