Claude Gaveau's land and seascapes, figurative works (nudes and couples) and floral bouquets are a celebration of life. The chromatic richness, elegant design, warm and sensual palette and sculptural composition of these canvasses endow them with a magnetic voluptuousness which bears witness to the artist's enchantment with his visual universe.

Born in Paris at the outbreak of World War II, Claude Gaveau belongs in the figurative line of French classicism, as expressed in his diverse oeuvre (paintings, drawings, gouaches, lithographs and tapestries).
