This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist's son, David Berndt, August 2003:

Bayard Taylor Berndt was an active member of the Wilmington, Delaware community of artists following the age of illustrators studying under Howard Pyle. He was a student of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art as well as the Wilmington Academy of Art, where he later became Director. Berndt's instructors at the Wilmington Academy included N.C. Wyeth, Gayle Hoskins, Thornton Oakley, and Frank Schoonover.

He never felt a need to go outside the Brandywine region to paint, plus he was running a gallery/frame/art supply store full time. Berndt established Hardcastle Gallery as Wilmington's first art gallery, showcasing local artists.

Biography from Hardcastle Gallery:
Bayard Berndt did paintings of the little-known Delaware scenes and his reconstructed landscapes of yesteryear are historically accurate as well as full of nostalgia. Covering huge tracts, the semi-aerial perspectives nonetheless bring into focus recognizable landmarks that draw the beholder into the scenes.

Berndt did considerable research for his original studies. Once they were established, he executed his paintings with broad sweeping strokes, eliminating unnecessary detail. A student of Gayle Hoskins, Frank Schoonover and N.C. Wyeth, Mr. Berndt painted local scenes for over fifty years.

Bayard Berndt was born in Wilmington in 1908. He attended the Philadelphia Museum School and the Wilmington Academy of Art where he taught and served as secretary. In 1931, he won the European Travel Scholarship which influenced his conviction that all the beauty of the Old World can be found here in Delaware as well.

Mr. Berndt was a member of the Delaware Council of Artists, the Chester County Art Center, the Wilmington Society of Fine Arts and the Delaware Historical Society.

He was the owner and manager of Hardcastle, Inc., an art supply and framing store, for over thirty years. He opened a gallery there to show original work of local artists, affording them an opportunity to display and sell their paintings.

Mr. Berndt's landscapes, which express his deep appreciation of this area, have been shown in many exhibitions and his paintings are in both public and private collections.

Biography from Qoro LLC:
The works of Bayard Taylor Berndt are premier examples of the illustrators of the Brandywine River School. Bayard Berndt, a Delaware artist (1908-1987) studied with N.C. Wyeth, Frank Schoonover, Gayle Hoskins and other students of Howared Pyle, the founder of the Brandywine School.

In sequence with the colorful change of the seasons, he painted Delaware scenes such as Rockland Mills, Smith's Bridge, and Hagley''s Tavern. As an historian and illustrator, he recreated many scenes such as Washington and his troops crossing the Market Street Bridge overthe Brandywine River, Christmas in New Castle (1750), and Lafayette''s headquarters in Chadds Ford PA.

His painting are in the private collections of Delaware's leading families, corporations and the University of Delaware.
