Claude Venard was a French post-Cubist and still life painter. Known for working in a distinctive angular style, he accentuated the chromatic qualities of his palette through thickly applied impasto paint. Born on March 21, 1913 in Paris, France the artist enrolled at the École des Beaux-Arts, but abandoned his studies after only two days—instead, his arts education would come from his job repairing paintings with a master restorer at the Louvre Museum.
