Guy Bardone was born in 1927 in Saint-Claude, France. Bardone studied at the Ecole National Supérieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris where he trained under Brianchon, Cavailles and Desnoyer. Bardone was awarded the prestigious Prix Félix Fénéon in 1952, which gave him an introduction into the Paris art market.
In 1953 he was selected to the all-important group exhibitions "celebrities and revelations of contemporarypainting" at Musée Galliera in Paris.
He participated for the first time in 1954 in the exhibition "Paris School" at the Galerie Charpentier.
In 1957, he received the Foundation Award Greenshields where Vlaminck and Dunoyer de Segonzac Villon were part of the Jury.
His works are regularly exhibited in France and abroad including the United States. In 1986 a major retrospective was held at the Château de Chenonceau.
His paintings are a combination of landscapes and still lifes. Bardone’s use of light, calm mood and remoteness are highly admired in his radiant landscapes.
