Robert Vernet-Bonfort was born in Marseille and studied at the city's l'école des Beaux-Arts from 1948 to 1957. Deaf from a young age, Vernet-Bonfort found great comfort and a means of expressing himself through the application of paint on canvas.

He has been recognized as belonging to the “Modern School of Marseille”, a style of French Provencal painting dominated by the sensuous colours and striking contrasts found in the rural and maritime landscapes of the South of France and Spain.

Good estate condition.
