Bernard Childs (1910-1985) Solo Exhibitions 1959 - Galerie Ariel, Selected Group Exhibitions Paris 1960 / 1959 /1958 Galerie Ariel, Paris Bernard Childs was an artist who worked in Paris and New York. He was primarily a painter and printmaker, and pioneered the direct engraving of metal plates with power tools. As a kind of counterpoint to his many layered work, which is often symbolic and a fusion of abstraction and figuration, in 1959 he also started painting portraits. Childs' formal interests were line and space, light and color, and the dialogue of contrasting elements.
