We’ve been meaning to do a blog post about Bernard Buffet for a long time.
The recent purchase of this vintage poster brought it to mind once again. We had it sent from France and it advertises an exhibition held in 1969 at the Musée d’Unterlinden in Colmar.
It’s just come back from our wonderful local framers, Abacus. We chose burnished gold – reminiscent of an antique religious icon.
It now hangs above our bedroom fireplace. We love it!
We also framed these vinyl album covers that were illustrated by Buffet.
The set – Ella Fitzgerald sings Gershwin – dates from 1959.
Great records and great covers – a perfect combination.
He’s a fabulous artist – so distinctive – and one of our real favourites. Here’s a link to the online Musée Bernard Buffet…
…and here’s a 2-minute, black & white film from 1962 of Buffet and his wife, Annabel in their château and private chapel. We discovered on the British Pathé website – there’s so much beautiful art on the walls!
We’ve set up a Buffet Flickr group – please add your images if you have some or just have a browse!
