Couturier attended the renowned L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Marseilles. He paints by superimposing layers of sand and oil on canvas with a palette knife. As a gifted & expressive colorist, Couturier gives the surface of his canvases a jewel-like quality that illuminates his sure & elegant sense of composition. Whether he is painting open vistas or still-lives, the artist creates a subtle intimacy with spontaneous gesture, vigorous texture and robust linear networks. The sensitivity with which these powerful elements are combined reflect remarkable discipline in an intense artistic spirit. Rene Couturier's talent has commanded international interest in the artist's unique and powerful paintings, drawings and graphic works. Born in 1933 in Dieppe on the coast of Normandy.
