Bernard Dufour Signed 1955 Abstract Oil on Canvas Painting


A 1955 oil on canvas abstract painting by French artist Bernard Dufour (1922 - 2016). Broadly white, the abstract painting depicts a montage of green, blue, gray, and black abstract shapes and organic patterns. The painting is presented in a wood frame and is signed "Bernard Dufour" to the bottom right.

Known for abstract painting after WWII, Dufour moved into more figural and portrait paintings thereafter, often with erotic representation. During the 1970s, photography and writing captured his interest after befriending many famous literary authors of the time. Dufour exhibited at Galerie Maeght, Jeanne Bucher gallery, as well as the second documenta exhibition in Kassel, Germany.
