Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Guy Buffet

Guy Buffet was born in Paris, France in the district of Montparnasse on January 13, 1943.

His father took young Guy for walks in Montparnasse to show him famous landmarks where artists such as Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, and George Braque would spend most of their days and evenings.

At 14, he moved to the south of France with his mother, and enlisted in the Beaux Arts School of Toulon to study art full time.

Buffet joined the French Navy in 1961 at the age of eighteen, and was assigned to the cruiser, “De Grasse”, headed for a seven month journey around the world.

The French Navy recognized Buffet’s artistic talent and named him their official artist.

Buffet’s famous images depict restaurants, people, landscapes, and cities with a humorous and light touch.

Buffet’s depictions often reflect the everyday working world, along with his love of people and food and exotic locations.

His whimsical rendition of sommeliers, chefs and waiters and other images are found not only in his paintings, but on every day items as dinner plates, napkins, tablecloths, and fashion.
