Artist of the moment…….Bernard Stern

Bernard Stern was a  painter who was also a  printmaker, and sculptor who enjoyed working with the face and figure. The artist also created a large body of rather abstract works.

His lineage is more difficult to remember than most artists! Stern was British and born in Brussels, Belgium.Stern was married first to a Vietnamese princess and later to an American woman.

He lived in all of the major artistic cities at some point. London, England and Paris, France and New York City.

Bernard Stern came from a short family and he also was very short but had a great work ethic and tremendous  determination.

The artist lived an incredible life as he was born to  wealthy Jewish family in Brussels, Belgium in the year 1920. He was the only son. As his family was Jewish one day all of their possessions weren’t theirs anymore and the artist didn’t panic. He had belief in himself and turned out to be a great businessman with his lampshade painting business!

Bernard Stern was also a great businessman. He created a company that specialized in painting lampshades.

The artist did marry a princess from Vietnam. The couple had three children. The marriage ended and Stern took up painting avidly once again.

Stern was known as the man who lived life at 100,000 volts!

What a great businessman and artist! The artist also had a great collection of art. What an amazing life this artist had. It seems he had the best of everything and still wanted to create art!

Bernard Stern was killed in a car accident in France in 2002 and was killed at the age of 82 years of age.

Price range information: Sorry none available.
