Biography from
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Rene' Couturier is an artist whose works displays bold figurative lines of the "Jeune Painture" Movement, and has an Abstract dimension, and a challenging, distinctive color technique.

With a palette knife, Couturier's blends superimposed layers of sand and oil paint with the goal of creating a composition that is a vigorous contrast of color on texture, texture on dimension, dimension on line.

Born in 1933 in Dieppe, Normandy, a coastal town of France, Rene began drawing before he could walk.  As an adolescent, he attended a watch making school and later went on to study at l'Ecole des Beaux Arts of Marseille. From 1958 to 1968 he was represented in several group and salon shows in France. He has since embarked on a round of exhibitions that include Europe, Africa, Canada and the United States.

Several of his landscapes and still life drawings were inspired by his native seaside environment, many others were culled from far reaching sojourns to Brazil, Morocco, Spain and Mali, and six months on the Ivory Coast.

Often likened to Bernard Buffet, Rene' Couturiers' works reflect a similar eye for subject studies, but the focus of the intent originates from a uniquely personal source of fervor.

As an expressive colorist, Rene Couturier strives to give the surface of his canvases a jewel-like quality that illuminates and focuses on composition. Whether he is painting open vistas or still-lives, the artist aims for a subtle intimacy with spontaneous gesture, vigorous texture and robust linear networks. 

Born in 1933 in Dieppe on the cost of Normandy, Couturier attended the L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Marseilles. 

Since completing his studies, the artist has lived in Mexico, the United States, Africa and France.

His work appears in exhibitions throughout the continents of Europe, North America and Africa.
