Claude Garache (born 1929 or 1930) is a French artist. He has worked in painting, sculpture, illustration and engraving. His principal subject is the female nude. Much of his work uses a single colour on a monochrome background, very often blood-red on white. Garache was born in Paris on 20 January 1929 or in 1930. Between 1949 and 1959 he studied sculpture and drawing under the sculptor Robert Coutin. He spent time in the studios of Andre Lhote and Fernand Léger, and also visited Alberto Giacometti and worked in the sculpture studio of the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts. He travelled frequently in the 1950s, in Europe and to the Middle East and the United States. In 1955 he worked as an artistic advisor to Vincente Minnelli during the filming of Lust for Life, his biography of Vincent van Gogh. Garache later made sculptures for L'Année dernière à Marienbad (1961), directed by Alain Resnais.
