In 1957, his first solo exhibition was held at the Galerie Saint-Placide, where the major art critique awards take place in Paris. Themes revolve around the crooked nose hunchbacks from Italian mask carnivals to the humorous characters from French puppet shows. The simplicity of each image has exempted all irrelevant details that distracts the center of attention. Claude Weisbuch fully developed his style in his 60’s, focusing on minimum colors but emphasize on the flow of his lines. He received the great Art Critique Award in 1961, which expanded his fame significantly.
