Eugene Berman was a painter born in Russian in 1899. He trained largely in Paris, France where he was greatly influenced by the works of Pierre Bonnard. Drawn to the United States by legendary art dealer Julien Levy, he exhibited alongside Salvador Dali, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and Howard Warshaw. While living in Los Angeles, Berman was inspired by Hollywood and the collector Wright Ludington. His work has been featured in many significant museums worldwide and has been shown in solo exhibitions such as "High Drama: Eugene Berman and the Legacy of the Melancholic Sublime". In 1957, Berman retired to Rome after the death of his wife, actress Ona Munson. He passed away in 1972.
