About

Bernard Chaet (1924-2012) was a renowned artist and educator who was a professor of art at Yale University for nearly forty years. Rockport and the surrounding area were a continuing source of inspiration for Chaet’s paintings of He first gained recognition for what he calls his “dumb” paintings, when Marcia Tucker, founding director of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, included his work in her groundbreaking exhibition, “Bad Painting” (1978) abstract interiors, still lifes and seascapes. Often portraying the same location repeatedly, he would discover nuances of light, color and atmosphere that were constantly shifting in nature. Chaet was the author of the seminal book The Art of Drawing. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and Japan, and is represented in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Brooklyn Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, and the Hirshhorn Museum among many others.
