Claude Gaveau

(French, b. 1940)


Gaveau is an internationally acclaimed artist, often known for creating still life and nude compositions. By juxtaposing sharp, geometric forms with fluid, soft elements, he creates elegant, romantic works enjoyed by a wide range of audiences. Gaveau’s paintings capture the essence of innocence, keeping figures and objects apparent enough to appreciate their beauty and purpose, but abstracted in a way that leaves a trace of wonder.

Claude Gaveau was born in France during the winter of 1940. He followed in the footsteps of an artistic family, his uncles both painters and craftsman, and his grandfather the creator of the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. He recalls receiving painting lessons from his uncle at the age of five and from that moment, his interest never wavered. After attending the National Superior School of Les Beaux Arts in Paris, he had his first solo exhibition at the Angle Aigu in Paris. His talents were recognized; he was subsequently featured in numerous one-man exhibitions, which led to his international recognition in the early 1970’s.

The sophisticated walls of Moroccan villages, the sentiment of Venetian canals, and the style of Californian décor are all inspirations that play into Gaveau’s masterpieces. Art critics have compared his art to the grace of a symphony. Delicate and peaceful, Gaveau is a highly collectable artist who’s works will last the test of time.
