Bernie Fuchs Gallery

In the December 2008 issue of American Artist, we examined Bernie Fuch's philosophy on creating both fine art and illustration by looking at work presented in a retrospective at the Telluride Gallery of Fine Art, in Telluride, Colorado. Here, we present some additional images from that retrospective that we were unable to fit into the print magazine.

  1. Bernie Fuchs is one great artist who has influence my art over the years. His TV Guide covers alone is a treasure. Thanks for sharing his work.


  2. Bernie gave a lecture to my class in 1978 at Ringling School of Art and I was fortunate to meet him. He certainly was the talk of the illustration world at the time with his transparent washes. Always enjoyed his work.
