German Artist: Bernd Lehmann – Automotive Unique Old Master Etchings

25 Mar

“Bernd Lehmann, born in 1950, is a contemporary painter of beautiful objects. His works speak from within, and in their perfection they rank among the supreme achievements of the etching technique.”

The artist –  Atelier-Bernd Lehmann

Bernd Lehmann, born in 1950, is living in Germany in the countryside near Hamburg. He is a freelance artist since 17 years now. Before he worked for several companies in Hamburg and the surroundings as a lithographer. In a very sensitive and empathic way he brings out the deep characters of his illustrations. Their charisma may touch the contemplator’s soul. His style is a composition of realism and impressionism.

The technique

Lehmann sways the mature technology of etching. He cuts his mirrored  pictures into a metal surface to create a design in intaglio just like the old masters Rembrandt or Dürer did. He inks the metal plate with one color and puts it with a moistened sheet of paper in a high pressure  printing press. The numbers of the crafted impressions are low to keep  up the value. Every single print will be finished in a special way and  colored as may be necessary. So every print is a genuine original.


The artists reputation

Connoisseurs all over Europe appreciate the impressive quality of his fine etchings. His etchings of flowers and portraits of musicians, poets and other characters of the contemporary history and also views from vintage cars to lighthouses formed his kudos. His works could be seen at the Frankfurt Book Fair, Frankfurt Ambiente, IAA Frankfurt Car Fair and Art Fair Europe.

Lehmann crafted etchings for clients such as Caterpillar, Volkswagen, Porsche, Airbus, Lamborghini, Breitling, Rolls Royce and Bentley

A German philosopher and university professor characterized his works as “truly gorgeous, technically perfect and equally absolutely romantically empathetic.” “His art concentrates the beauty of the moment”, a doctor of literature lauded Lehmanns etchings.
