Peterdi, 1966" all in the margin immediately below the platemark.Printed in green. 22 x 36 inches. Unusually large and intricate, even for Peterdi. Robert Bero, 1941-2007 was an American printmaker. The following is from his obituary in the New York Times: "Born in Brooklyn, NY in 1941, Bero studied at the Pratt Institute (BFA) and at Yale University (MFA). He later taught at SUNY, Potsdam, Brown University and SUNY, Purchase. John Canaday of the New York Times wrote that ''Bero's enormous woodcuts, years in the making and days in the printing expand the horizons of printmaking.'' Bero's work has been exhibited at the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, Cornell University, Yale University, the Museum of Fine Arts, Cincinnati, and the Society of American Graphic Artists. Along with his artistic contributions, Robert Bero was a valued mentor to his students and a friend to many in the Tuxedo Park area. His warmth, kindness, and endless knowledge of art will be deeply missed."
