Bernard Buffet (1928 - 1999) was a multifaceted and talented artist who worked as a painter, etcher, lithographer, designer, and sculptor and produced religious pieces, landscapes, portraits and still-lifes. Buffet's work had a consistent somber mood that seemed to represent the atmosphere of the postwar period. He committed suicide at his home in Tourtour, Southern France, on October 4, 1999. He was suffering from Parkinson's disease and was no longer able to work.
