Product description

Review

"splendidly unstuffy… first class" (The Times)

"[a] fascinating account" (Bill Prince Telegraph Luxury)

"[a] thoroughly researched account of a life tinged with sadness, spent mostly in the studio, compulsively painting" (The Independent)

"Foulkes is really good at, the thing with which this book is happily stuffed, is snappy storytelling…[The] years of excess provide the book with its most entertaining stretches." (The Sunday Times)

"Whatever your opinion of the work of the prolific French expressionist Bernard Buffet, it’s not hard to be seduced by the premise of Nick Foulkes’ new biography, Bernard Buffet: The Invention of the Modern Mega-Artist." (Wallpaper*)

"Foulkes has drowned himself in the subject and done some impressive research… He always has interesting things to say…bold and stylish." (The Spectator)

"A timely reappraisal of Buffet’s work and a haunting account of a glittering career that ended in tragedy" (Daily Mail)

"Riveting" (Daily Mail)

"Foulkes recounts, with skill and a sense of fun… especially good at evoking Fifties and Sixties French culture, with all the cigarette smoke, beautiful people and Paris-Match style is deserves" (Esquire)

"A storyteller beyond compare" (The Rake)
