"Jules Duffart Born in 1924, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Paris. His recent exhibitions demonstrate a dynamic talent with an unusual style that surprised audiences and critics alike.

A turbulent spirit inspired by a creative force of glowing enthusiasm. Experts recognize him as one of the rarest talents of today's young artists."
