Catalogue Note

‘For me, the notion of realism corresponds to the recognition of objects, of nature. Realist painting for me is concreteness… realism consists in the representation of things’

(Bernard Buffet, quoted in N. Adamson, 'The Last Big Artist in Paris, Bernard Buffet', in Art Journal of the National Gallery of Victoria, no. 44, 2004, n.p.).
