  • About the artist
    Bernard Cohen is regarded as one of the leading British abstract artists of his time. The younger brother of the artist Harold Cohen, he was born in London of Polish-Russian parents and trained at the Slade School of Art, London, from 1951 to 1954. He spent two years in France, Spain and Italy before holding his first solo exhibition in London in 1958. He has since held many solo shows, both in the UK and abroad, and his work is represented in public collections including Tate London; Mellon Collection, Yale; University of New Mexico, Albuquerque and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Cohen has taught at many art schools and was Slade Professor at the Slade School of Art, part of University College London, from 1988 to 2000.
