French Painting Attributed to Bernard Dufour

SHANE MEREDITH ANTIQUES
French painting on panel c.1970 attributed to Bernard Dufour.

From 1960, Bernard Dufour turned from abstract to figurative painting, initially self-portraits and mournful figures, later scandalous nudes. He took part in the Venice Biennale in 1964. From this time he formed enduring friendships with other writers of the literary avant garde, such as Pierre Guyotat, Denis Roche, Catherine Millet and Jacques Henric.

La Belle Noiseuse, Jacques Rivette's 1991 film about an elderly artist, was partly inspired by Dufour, who was credited as "the hand of the artist" painting the picture at the heart of the film.
