This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Schooled in music at the Cincinnati Conservatory, Berne studied piano in Berlin, Germany with Arthur Rubinstein. Here he experienced the radical ferment in the arts in Europe during the pre- WWI years. He returned to Cincinnati and married Lucile Kroger, the daughter of the grocery fortune.  When she died, he was 56 years old, and began painting in earnest. Berne received instruction in painting at the Cincinnati Art Academy with Frank Myers and Carl Zimmerman, also studying with Harold Brett on Cape Cod.

His earliest works were representational, but as he grew older his paintings became more personal, more intense, and more abstract. After a serious illness, at age 96, he began a sequence of paintings where he painted one picture a day, or 147 paintings in 162 days.  He died in 1973.
