Bernard Shea Horne (American, 1867-1933)

Bernard Shea Horne began a two-year course of studies at the Clarence H. White School of Photography, during his late forties, where he became friends with Clarence White and Max Weber. After graduating, he became the school's technical instructor from 1918-1926, succeeding Paul Lewis Anderson. Horne was a consummate artist in platinum, gum bichromate, and oil prints. Although he experimented in abstraction and cubist-inspired design and followed advanced compositional ideas, he generally remained faithful to the elements of Pictorialism.
