By 1926, the year of this still life's creation, Émile Bernard had reinvented himself many times over. He had begun his artistic career as a student at Cormon's studio where he befriended fellow students Louis Anquetin and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. After being expelled from Cormon's studio, Bernard journyed on foot from Paris to Pont-Aven in 1886. In following years, with companions including Van Gogh, Schuffenecker, and Gauguin, Bernard developed the Sythetist style of painting. In 1890, Bernard attended Van Gogh's funeral in Auvers. In 1891, Bernard cut ties with Gauguin. He then moved to Egypt where he would live until 1904. Upon his return to France, Bernard stayed in Aix-en-Provence and spent time working with Paul Cézanne. Toward the end of his career, Bernard turned his attention to classical themes and compositions, adopting and exploring the styles of the great Renaissance masters. Contact for more information.
