Born in 1913, Claude Venard was a French painter closely identified with the Post-Cubist movement. Venard attended the Académie des Beaux-Arts for less than a week before dropping out, instead receiving his art education at the École des Arts Appliqués. After a brief affiliation with the Forces Nouvelles art movement, Venard developed his distinctive Post-Cubist style. Vernard’s work was exhibited at many prestigious international galleries during his lifetime, including Galerie Charpentier and Bernheim-Jeune in Paris, the Leicester Gallery and Arthur Tooth & Sons in London, and the Musée de L’Athénée in Geneva. Today, Claude Venard’s paintings are among the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and the Tate Museum of London.
