10 major works by Bernard Buffet from the Pierre Bergé Collection

PARIS | 21 APRIL 2022

An extraordinary group of 10 paintings by Bernard Buffet given to Pierre Bergé by the artist during their life together between 1950 and 1958 will be offered at auction in the Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art sale. These historical paintings accompanied Pierre Bergé throughout his life and are a testimony to the passionate history between two exceptional personalities.

“During those eight years, we were never apart for a single day. Our lives revolved around Bernard’s work. No matter what happened to me after, I never forgot the youth that was ours, the ambition that consumed us, the lack of self-consciousness that allowed us to confront any danger”. - Pierre Bergé, Les jours s’en vont je demeure.
