  • splendidly unstuffy… first class

    The Times
  • [a] fascinating account

    Bill Prince, Telegraph Luxury
  • [a] thoroughly researched account of a life tinged with sadness, spent mostly in the studio, compulsively painting

    The Independent
  • Foulkes is really good at, the thing with which this book is happily stuffed, is snappy storytelling…[The] years of excess provide the book with its most entertaining stretches.

  • Whatever your opinion of the work of the prolific French expressionist Bernard Buffet, it’s not hard to be seduced by the premise of Nick Foulkes’ new biography, Bernard Buffet: The Invention of the Modern Mega-Artist.

  • Foulkes has drowned himself in the subject and done some impressive research… He always has interesting things to say…bold and stylish.

    The Spectator
  • A timely reappraisal of Buffet’s work and a haunting account of a glittering career that ended in tragedy

    Daily Mail
  • Riveting

    Daily Mail
  • Foulkes recounts, with skill and a sense of fun… especially good at evoking Fifties and Sixties French culture, with all the cigarette smoke, beautiful people and Paris-Match style is deserves

    Esquire
  • A storyteller beyond compare

    The Rake
