Gabriel Godard was born on April 28, 1933 in Delouze in Lorraine. He started painting in 1950 with many of his initial works being figurative. Godard later changed his method and style, and his paintings since 1986 have become purely abstract.

Gabriel Godard is a School of Paris painter, meaning part of a group of artists working between World War I and World War II whose works has been acquired by the French government for the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

Many of his works have won prizes and continue to do so. Private collections include the United States, Germany, Switzerland, England, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Belgium and France.

As an independent and a difficult-to-categorize artist, Gabriel Godard paints what he is from his internal landscape: untiringly tuned to nature's metamorphosis and to that which defines his intimate being. He is described as "ready to capture, in his own way, the slightest emotion, he couples his truth with the truth of the world and his real side with his hidden side.
