Bernard Dufour (1922-2016) was a French painter. He was notable for abstract painting after the Second World War, and later for portraits and human figures. His first solo exhibition was at the Galerie Maeght in 1948, followed by exhibitions in the Jeanne Bucher gallery between 1951 and 1953. Motivated by these successes, he soon signed an exclusive contract with art dealer Pierre Loeb. He collaborated with many writers, including René de Solier, André Pieyre de Mandiargues, Georges Lambrichs, Paule Thévenin and Alain Jouffroy. In the later 1950s, he began to attract attention outside France. Bernard Dufour has 355 available auction results.
