Berlin, Sven 1911-1997 British Portrait of an Old Man, 17
Berlin, Sven 1911-1997 British Portrait of an Old Man, 17.75 x 9.25 ins., (45 x 23.5 cms.), Oil on Board, Monogram front right. Sven Berlin was one of the characters in the Cornish art scene and a man of many talents, painter, sculptor, writer and poet. Sven was a man of strong views and was involved in a number of libel suits, let alone bouts of fisticuffs after publishing books about St. Ives. He was one of life's genuine Bohemians with rather too much talent for his own good. His paintings and sculptures are always interesting and usually strong.
