Emile Bernard – French Post-Inpressionist

Bernard, Émile – born 1868, died April 16, 1941, Paris, France
In 1886 Bernard went to Pont-Aven, where he theorized a Cloisonnist style of painting bold forms separated by dark contours that somewhat influenced Gauguin. He also did sculpture and woodcuts and designed furniture and tapestries. As a poet and writer, he studied religious mysticism and philosophy. Part of the fame of Cézanne and Redon rests on Bernard’s prophetic admiration of their early work.
