This elegant oil on board is a stunning example of Buffet’s unique graphic style. His expressive and angular brushstrokes add great dynamism to the piece's overall vertical composition and contrasts boldly with the palette of pastel colors. In Village, as with most of his works, Buffet moves away from realistic representation towards a highly stylized and individual interpretation of cityscapes. Village epitomizes Buffet's uniquely graphic style through its sharp brushstrokes and distinct olor palette.
