About the artist
A Modern British artist who deserves to be better known, Bernard Myers’ work very successfully bridges the abstract/figurative divide in British art of the mid 20th century.
Born in 1925, he was a contemporary at the Royal College of Art of John Bratby, Frank Auerbach and Leon Kossoff. He later became a teacher at the RCA where one of his students was the inventor James Dyson. Myers wrote several books on art and artists and had a studio close to the Thames in Hammersmith.
Myers died in 2007, and his work has recently been attracting attention again as a result of the release of paintings from his estate.
