A Paris School painting of an unknown clown by mid-century French painter Jules Duffart, reminiscent of Bernard Buffet.

JULES DULES DUFFART (FRENCH, 1924-) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, France. A 1950s modernist and French School artist, he is widely known as a painter of landscapes, still life scenes, portraits, & human activity, he often uses color in a delicate chromatic range in a similar style to that of Bernard Buffet.  One chronicler of the Paris art world of the 1950s wrote glowingly about the young artist at that time:

"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. His formulations are dramatic and authoritative. His colors, developing in a delicate chromatic range, show a profound harmony, an infinite gradation of shades with serene transparency. 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."
