Biography  
Bernard James Von Eichman


An abstract painter, Bernard von Eichman was a prominent figure in the Bay Area of California during much of the 20th century.  He was known as "Red" for his fiery red hair and volatile disposition which, combined with his stocky build, led him into many combative situations.

He was a friend and classmate of artist Louis Siegriest in Oakland, and their friendship became a major factor in the cohesiveness of the Society of Six, artists around Selden Gile who focused on use of bright colors and abstract forms and rebelled against the prevalent conservative styles of William Keith and Arthur Mathews.  Other members of the Society in addition to Gile and Siegriest were William Clapp, Maurice Logan, and August Gay.
