    Art Brokerage: Bernard Charoy French Artist: b. 1931. Bernard Charoy was born in 1931 to a family of artisans, in the Lorraine region on the East of France. His creative lineage and the artistic heritage of his region were to have a profound influence on his career. Before entering boarding school he had already demonstrated his gift as a draftsman. By the age of 11 he was executing drawings and illustrations which showed exceptional talent and - something which is far more rare than technical virtuosity - a keen sense of human sentiment which would continue to mark his later works. His prodigious talent and introspective sensibility are brilliantly illustrated by the self-portrait at the front of the book, which he executed at the age of 17. Charoy came to Butte Montmartre in 1955 to learn and work with the artists of the Atelier Dejoie. He came with his prodigious talent and a burning desire to learn and work. It was here that he learned the art of lithography and began applying his talents to the more difficult medium oil painting. At the same time he also made the necessary contacts with advertising agencies and newspaper publishers to pursue an artistic career in Paris. Painting is a serious medium suited to the expression of profound sentiment and grand subjects. Illustration is the perfect mode for the depiction of imagination, reverie and idealised forms - in this case female form. Charoy's Pin-up girls are fine examples. Bernard Charoy is a brilliant talented figurative artist, who was continued to follow and develop his creativity instincts for nearly half a century. However, Charoy is, in large part, a painter of the "eternal feminine" through Charoy is known and, no doubt, will always be remembered first and foremost as a painter of women, there is something more singular, more specific to his oeuvre. From the early pen and ink drawings to the ambitious large scale canvases I am unmistakable sensibility in habits all of these works, meaning that they could only be signed "Charoy".
