EMILE BERNARD (French / 1868-1941)

The Symbolist painter Émile Bernard was the founder with Paul Gauguin of the School of Pont-Aven. Bernard was close to both Gauguin and to Vincent Van Gogh. Born in Lille, Émile Bernard studied under Cormon at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris, but rebelled against Cormon's academic training and was expelled for insubordination. Bernard took refuge in Brittany, where he fell in love with the unspoilt landscape of Pont-Aven. As a printmaker, Émile Bernard made wood engravings, zincographs, drypoints, and lithographs.
