Bert came to the US from The Netherlands at the end of 1982 and worked for many years as a NIH- and NSF-funded Research Professor at Northwestern University’s Department of Neurobiology (Evanston, IL). Next to his career in science he has always been very active in the arts, and his art has been affected by his research activities insofar as the often-tedious discipline needed in research is also used in his art; obtaining the final image is like a research goal.
As well as in private collections, Bert’s works are included in several public collections, e.g., Museum Rotterdam (The Netherlands), China Print Art Museum (Shenzhen, China), the Douro Museum Printmaking Collection (Peso da Régua, Portugal), the Elmhurst Art Museum, and the Illinois State Museum.
His works have won awards at several exhibitions, e.g., at the “Third Sapporo International Print Biennale” (1996, Sapporo, Japan), at “Imprima 2012, Mostra Internacional de Gravura” (2012, Sobral, Brazil), and at the “Boston Printmakers 2013 North American Print Biennial” (2013, Boston, MA).
