Claude Gaveau

French (1940)

About the artist:

Claude Gaveau was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine in 1940. For five years he attended the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in Paris, where he learned the disciplines of mural and fresco painting, tapestry design and stained glass making. Then he studied for six years at Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, becoming equally accomplished in oil painting, watercolor, drawing and lithography. During his course of study he won a first prize given by the Academy of Antwerp. A scholarship to study Flemish painting took him to Belgium for four months and led to his first one-man show, which was held in Brussels in 1965. Other exhibitions of his work followed during the 1960’s and 1970’s in France with the Galerie Vauban in Dijon in 1967, 1968 and 1970; with the Galerie Saint Placide in Paris in 1968; with the Galerie Marc Hudier in Belfort in 1970; and three one-man shows with the Galerie La Belle Gabrielle in Paris in 1972, 1975 and 1978. In 1980 Claude Gaveau’s first one-man exhibition with Wally Findlay Galleries International took place in New York. Described by critic André Weber as “symphonic”, .." Claude Gaveau’s landscapes, seascapes, nudes, couples, still lifes and florals have harmonies of color, structure, and emotion which draw the viewer into the artist’s interior vision. Seeming to withdraw from reality, yet not abstract, his unique style has an element of mystery, suggesting rather than defining, with diffused indications of form often set against blocks of intense color.
