Bernard Childs: Paints/Prints/Images in Light

July 26 – October 31, 1969


In 1959 Bernard Childs was accorded a large exhibition of his paintings, drawings, and intaglio prints by Amsterdam's prestigious Stedelijk Museum. It represented nearly ten years of work since his arrival in Europe in 1951. The present exhibition records his considerable accomplishments during the ensuing decade of the Sixties. In this span of years, the artist's vision has deepened and he has achieved an underlying unity in the great variety of media and mood of which he has long been a master.
