Sandor Bernath
"In Flight," Sandor Bernath, Modernist watercolor of seagulls over the ocean



Sandor Bernath was born in Hungary in 1892 and lived in Budapest before immigrating to New York. By 1918, he had begun to establish himself in the art life of the city. Although slightly younger than Edward Hopper and the Precisionist painters, Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth, Bernath adopted both their aesthetic and subject matter. He made his professional debut in 1922, in a solo show at Mrs. Malcolm's Gallery on East 64th Street. The exhibition of nineteen watercolors included both New York and European subjects. In 1923, he turned his attention to seascapes of the New England coastline. During the twenties, he became a member of the New York Water Color Club, American Water Color Society, and Brooklyn Society of Modern Artists, and exhibited at the Whitney Museum and Art Institute of Chicago. Like many of his peers, Bernath worked as a teacher and illustrator to support himself. In the late 1920s, he moved to Eastport, Maine, where he continued to live until at least 1945. "In Flight" is a wonderful watercolor by the modernist, Sandor Bernath, of seagulls flying over the ocean.
