Nicholas Berger Biography

American, b. 1949

Nicholas Berger’s career as an artist spans three decades and has brought him national and international acclaim for his paintings. A listed artist, having sold through Sotheby’s, Berger’s work is sought by discriminating collectors. Nicholas Berger paintings are found in the private collections of a former U.S. President and well-known entertainers. His work also has international appeal, as evidenced by a sold-out two-man show with Andrew Wyeth in Tokyo.

Nicholas Berger’s paintings have the power to draw the viewer into the heart of the scene, interacting with each individual in a personal way. Having worked for several decades in watercolor, his recent work consists of Hudson River landscapes painted in oil. In this new medium, viewers will continue to find the sensitivity reminiscent of Berger’s watercolors, the beauty of his signature detail work, and the subtlety and fine nuances that continue to place his work among the best.
