'2024 Bernard Buffet', the second large-scale retrospective exhibition of Bernard Buffet in Korea, introduces a total of over 100 works, including large-scale oil paintings of 4 meters, as well as watercolors, drawings, and prints, categorized by subjects.

Bernard Buffet (1928-1999) had his first solo exhibition at the age of 19 and won France's most prestigious critic's prize at the age of 20. At 27, the magazine Connaissance des arts named him the best artist of the post-war period, and at 30, the New York Times named him one of France's five fabulous young people. From an early age, Buffet was recognized as a prodigy, acclaimed by critics and beloved by the public. Despite this early recognition of his artistry and popularity, Buffet stubbornly insisted that he was a painter, not an artist.


From the everyday objects and people that appeared early in his career, to the clowns that reflected his existential concerns, to the landscapes of the world's cities, to literature/mythology/religion that revealed Buffet's expanded worldview, to his beloved wife and lifelong muse, Annabel, to his final subject, death... he freely traversed a wide range of subjects, from personal and private to popular or intellectual. Through various mediums such as painting, drawing, and printmaking, Buffet created his own aesthetics, and this exhibition provides an opportunity to confirm the physical presence.
