A giant of the School of Paris, one of the most worlwide renown and respected artist, Alain Bonnefoit has received a great number of awards and honors. He is an artist of many talents who produces beautiful drawings, paintings, engravings, lithographs and sculptures. The celebrated writer Hervé Bazin stated that he is the great painter of Venuses. Alain Bonnefoit introduces us into a world of joy and wonder and offers us dream, sensuality and erotism without falling into vulgarity.



In this workshop, devoted exclusively to the female figure, you will draw and paint models from life. I will teach primarily sumi-e, the japanese technique based on chinese ink, however students are free to use any other technique like drawing, watercolor, acrylic or mixed media. I will show you how to draw harmonious and suggestive lines by carefully observing the model.


Alain Bonnefoit studied in Paris at the École des Arts Appliqués and the École des Beaux-Arts. Later he registered in the engraving and sculpture section of the École des Beaux-Arts of Brussels. Back in Paris he became the student and friend of sculptor Volti. His artistic life brings him to Tuscany while he approaches the female figure, subject which will become his favorite form art. Since 1953 he has exhibited his work in many galleries in France, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, the USA, Tahiti, Korea and Japan. When he went to Japan for the first time in 1973 he was deeply impressed by the country and its culture. Since then he uses extensively the technique of sumi-e which he masters perfectly. Galleries in France : Matignon in Paris, Robin Léadouze in Paris and Cannes, St-Hubert in Lyon. In the field of rare limited editions he illustrated some of the most beautiful books of our time.
