Colin de Land / J. St. Bernard
J. St. Bernard is the artistic pseudonym for Colin De Land, one of New York’s most vibrant art dealers. He began his career with a gallery on East 6th St. during the height of the East Village art boom. His influence extended when he opened American Fine Arts in the relatively quiet SoHo. Mr. De Land’s carefree, inconsistent attitude fostered American Fine Arts into a safe-haven, breeding ground for artists and creative minds. De Land was one of the founders of the New York Armory Show. He died of cancer March 2, 2003. His legacy includes artists such as Richard Prince, Cady Noland and Jessica Stockholder. Tom Burr was represented by de Land at American Fine Arts.
