Henry Bergman (1893-1958) was a Winnipeg-based artist trained as a commercial wood engraver who later took up a fine art practice. The Burnaby Art Gallery collection includes some of Bergman’s best known black and white wood engravings. Bergman’s engravings were often inspired by landscapes, both urban and rural. His work is held in several public collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, AB.
