Bonnefoit is a famous artist known throughout the world for his beautiful artistic nudes in paintings and lithographs. His works capture the sensuality of the nude and his oil paintings and original signed and numbered prints reflect the sublime beauty of the body which are expressed in a most sophisticated manner.

Alain Bonnefoit was born on May 18, 1937 in Montmartre, Paris, France. In 1953, Bonnefoit entered l’Ecole des Arts Applique and l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. From 1959 to 1960, he studied “Engraving and Sculpture” at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Brussels.
In 1962, he returned to Paris and studied sculpture under the renowned Volti with whom he discovered the female nude. Since then, he has dedicated himself fully to this theme. His works are an ode to Woman as he portrays them in these wonderful art graphics, paintings and drawings. His Eve renditions are filled with life and sensuality and give pleasure to all who view them.

As the artist states,

“I love working lengthwise and widthwise. I love ample, generous, dashing movements. One should always avoid blocked, stunted, inhibited, breathless gestures. As in martial arts, the quality of breathing is essential for achievement. I would say that it is necessary to dominate not only the drawing, but also the matter that serves as support. This technique is physical and sensual. The strokes on the paper must necessarily be powerful, determined, instinctive.”

Called the "Painter of Venus" by writer Hervé Bazin, Alain Bonnefoit enchants us with his art, conjuring up dreams, sensuality and eroticism. Never falling into vulgarity, his work is dedicated to woman and her curves. For this highly talented artist - he is a painter, drawer, engraver, lithographer and sculptor - eroticism is above all refinement and sensuality, a state of mind and a way of life.

He is one of the most respected and most highly awarded artists in France and in the world. Alain Bonnefoit’s works are very much in demand because of his international status as an artist. His genius and success has earned him the respect of collectors worldwide and any of his works will provide beautiful home decor wall art..
