Biography Michael Bergt
Bergt works across various media, and is perhaps best known for his
historically inspired egg tempera paintings, which channel the Italian
Renaissance. One such work was selected to feature in the 2018 BP
Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery. Bergt is however by no
means a traditionalist, and his bronzes show a fascination with the
human form and often push the body's boundaries. The present work shows
the humorous and slightly surreal element that characterises the
artist's oeuvre. Bergt is a fellow of America's National Sculpture
Society, and his work is held by collections across the United States.
