Guy Bardone was born in 1927 in Saint-Claude, France. Bardone studied at the Ecole National Supérieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris where he trained under Brianchon, Cavailles and Desnoyer. Bardone was awarded the prestigious Prix Félix Fénéon in 1952, which gave him an introduction into the Paris art market. From there, he began to show his art in various Salons and Expositions, notably the 7th Salon Des Moins de 30 ans in 1947 (Salons of Artists Under 30 years old). Then in 1953, he was selected to the very important group of “Celebrites et Revelations de la peinture contemporaine” at the Galliera Museum in Paris.
His paintings are a combination of landscapes and still lifes. Bardone’s use of light, calm mood and remoteness are highly admired in his landscapes. He was known for his skill in working with thick colors, worked over with a knife and brush, as seen here in our “Pont a Rome” painting. It is a joyful and warm piece of art with radiant colors. Guy Bardone’s paintings are held in important private collections and museums throughout the world (National Museum of Modern Art (Center Pompidou, Paris), Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris, Nantes Museum of Fine Arts, Moderna Museet (Sweden), Art Library in Besançon).
