Historical Artist - Eugene Berman (1899 - 1972)

Born in Russia, Eugene Berman fled the Russian Revolution in 1918 and moved to Paris. While there, he encountered a group of painters called the Neo-Romantics and began to work in their dreamlike style. Berman moved to New York in 1935 and became an American citizen two years later. While in the United States, he worked mostly as a stage designer for ballet and opera. Berman's work was characterized by lonely landscapes featuring sculptural and architectural elements, often ruins, rendered in a neo-classical rather than contemporary manner. Later he left for New York where he worked briefly and settled down in Los Angeles in the 1940s.
