David Berger (American 1920 - 1966)
When David Berger died in 1966, at 46 years old, he left behind a beloved wife, two little daughters and a wondrous legacy of paintings, sculptures and works on paper. Although he couldn't have intended it, the image we envision of these circumstances, the mix of family love, grief, fear, fracture, as well as joy, ritual and celebration, is depicted in his art.
David Berger studied painting at the Massachusetts College of Art and received his MFA degree from the esteemed Cranbrook Academy in Michigan in 1950. His art was the subject of one-man museum exhibitions at the De Cordova Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts, in 1954 (prints), 1955 (paintings) and 1967 (memorial retrospective), at the Cranbrook Academy in 1957 and at the Kalamazoo Art Institute in 1957. Berger had numerous gallery exhibitions and was represented in New York by the Cober Gallery. In 1956 Berger was included in Art in America magazine's "100 Outstanding New Talents in the USA."
