"The Receptive" from the I Ching

Bernard Childs

About Bernard Childs
(1910-1985, American) Bernard Childs was an artist who worked in Paris and New York. He was primarily a painter and printmaker, and pioneered the direct engraving of metal plates with power tools. As a kind of counterpoint to his many-layered work, which is often symbolic and a fusion of abstraction and figuration. 

In 1959 he also started painting portraits. Childs' formal interests were line and space, light and color, and the dialogue of contrasting elements.

Childs' work was included in numerous international solo and group exhibitions, and is represented in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Brooklyn Museum, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Library of Congress, the Newark Public Library, the New York Public Library, the Fogg Art Museum, the Zimmerli Art Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, the Worcester Art Museum, the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
