Claude Fossoux

by on December 26, 2013

Claude Fossoux was born in Paris, France in 1946.


Claude Fossoux was born in Paris, France in 1946. Son of a Savoyard father and a Parisian mother.  After school, Claude obtained a grant to study at the Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts in Paris where he stayed for four years. During that time, he attended the studio of Chapelin-Midy and Pierre Caron.  He was greatly influenced by the Impressionists, particularly Sisley, Pissarro, and Renoir.   Claude Monet most strongly influenced Claude Fossoux’s style of impressionism.  His work is a subtle blending of the techniques and expressions of this master. Fossoux likes to paint cafe terraces, young girls wearing hats trimmed with flowers and ribbons.  He loves to make portraits and catch the personality of models, and to compose still lives where he can work on the effects of different textures. Critics say that the light is alive in Claude Fossoux’s paintings; it seems to come from the back of the canvas. His palette of fresh and shimmering colors, spangled with light, produces a style of painting both vibrant and joyous. All of Claude Fossoux’s works are luminous and spring-like.
