Bernard Cathelin

Bernard Cathelin

(1919-2004) French

Cathelin was born in Paris and studied under Henri Matisse and Maurice Brianchon, but his distinguished style separated him from his peers. Primarily using brushes and palette knives with oil on canvas, Cathelin applied rich colors and textures to poetic subjects honoring his home country and travels. He was also a skilled lithographer who worked alongside Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso in the Moulot print shop in Paris; he created more than 400 lithographs during his career.
