Méditer sur de Monde (Meditating on the World)
Bertrand was born in the South of Morocco, which left a lasting impression on him and a passion for distant horizons. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, from 1969 to 1973. At that point he discovered oriental art and philosophy and the works of Staël and Poliakof . These influences have shaped his work, in search of transcendence and simplicity. After a stay on a Pacific island, he settled in Burgundy, where he has lived since 1975. The French National Fund for Modern Art has one of his paintings in their collection.
