San Francisco

Eugene Berman

Pantechnicon

In the thirties Berman was an artist noted for his ballet, theatre and stage designs. He activated his imagery with those ideas that Dali and Chirico shared in common at the height of metaphysical surrealism. Now, some thirty years later, he currently exhibits a series of recent drawings, skillfully executed, elegant and sophisticated, which recreate for the observer 18th century Italian Baroque. An ideal kind of art for those people who are cultural refugees from the twentieth century.
