Émile Bernard

Émile Bernard (1868-1941) was a French painter and writer known for his development of Cloisonnism, a painting style characterized by flat colors enclosed by a dark outline and inspired by medieval enamel work and stained glass.  Born in Lille, France, he lived and worked in Paris for most of his life, studying at the École des Arts Décoratifs and teaching at the École des Beaux-Arts.  He toured Italy in 1894 and settled in Egypt for 10 years. In 1904, he returned to France, where he founded and edited the review La Rénovation Esthétique and published his correspondence with van Gogh, Gauguin, Redon, and Cézanne. He also created sculptures and woodcuts and designed furniture and tapestries.
