Artist Biography

Bernard Cohen (b. 1933)

Bernard Cohen is regarded as one of Britain’s leading abstract artists. Cohen rose to prominence in London during the 1960s, using woven lattices of lines, shapes, patterns, and color to present a complex pictorial language. Over his more than sixty years painting, Cohen’s work has continuously evolved and each painting is a reinvention. Cohen currently lives and works in London. 

Work by Cohen is held in numerous public collections, including the Arts Council of Great Britain, London; British Council, London; Caracas Museum, Venezuela; Contemporary Art Society, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Fogg Museum, Boston; Mellon Collection, Yale University; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Tate Gallery, London; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
