Sujet: I need help

Hi & great day!!!
Would you please tell me if Hermann Huppen ever painted an abstract painting, then signed it "BERNARD PRINCE." I have recently come to love the cartoon style artistry that Hermann Huppen has done, and I happened upon an original abstract painting and I was wondering if it could be his. If not, does anyone know who the artist BERNARD PRINCE is. I would love to hear back from you, and thank you!

Best regards,
Ashley

Bonjour et bonne journée ! ! !

Pouvez-vous me dire si Hermann Huppen jamais peint un tableau abstrait, puis signé "BERNARD PRINCE." Récemment, j'ai appris à aimer le style cartoon art qui Hermann Huppen a fait, et il m'est arrivé sur une peinture abstraite originale et je me demande s'il pourrait être le sien. Si non, est-ce que quelqu'un sait qui est l'artiste BERNARD PRINCE. J'aimerais entendre de votre part, et je vous remercie !

Cordialement,
Ashley,

Hello, ashley! Do you speak about this painting?

There is no relationship with the author of comics.

Re: I need help

No, I've never heard of that. He only drew this for a unfortunately rejected CD sleeve project but you can hardly call it an abstract artwork:
https://scontent-amt2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/1458_170583963148720_904706042_n.jpg?oh=368f9ba1e6c07283b0d71e69c4bae59b&oe=58FFB7D8

Can you provide an image of this piece of art?

As far as I know, he has never made any painting except a few oil illustrations back in the 80s (for book front covers only), as he doesn't pretend to be a painter. He's fully committed to his own narative work and doesn't have the time and possibly not the interest to go wandering around in different forms of art. And won't sign Bernard Prince instead of Hermann. Or maybe he did it for fun but the final product would be more than a quick sketch.

Just to be sure, I called him but he doesn't remember having done such a thing in the past. So, (almost) case closed! wink 

Anyway, welcome on our forum, Ashley! smile

Wow, if this is the painting that Ashely is talking about, it's definitely a no brainer: Hermann is NOT the author of it!

Je ne me souviens pas très bien. Je pense que c'était un groupe scandinave (norvégien ?) de jazz rock assez expérimental mais je peux me tromper. En tout cas, c'était pas REM ! tongue

Re: I need help

Hi & thank you all for your input. Sorry that I took so long to get back with you, but I'm overwhelmed at college. I wasn't able to uplink the photo, but I was able to input a photo of the painting it into imgur. Thank you again for your input, and please let me know what you think. Here is the link:

Re: I need help

Hi again! I just added a second photo to imgur which includes the signature "BERNARD PRINCE" from the painting. It's the same imgur link from the previous posting:

http://imgur.com/a/6rRCi

I've had the reoccurring thought that for someone to print their signature (as is on the painting) and not sign it as one normally would, makes me think that someone used Bernard Prince as a creative alias. I am also equally intrigued as to the idea that this may be Hermann's work because I am such a fan of his incredible artistry. Rutgers University in NJ- USA had the painting on display, and it is believed to be an original abstract painting, one of one. I'm just trying to find out more about the paintings origin. Again, thank you for your help and your input. I truly appreciate it!

Best regards,
Ashley

Re: I need help

I'm sorry to disappojnt you, Ashley, but those paintings are definitely not Hermann's. That it is signed Bernard Prince is probably just a coincidence as people bear that name in the "real world". I googled it and found that:

This one is funny too: http://www.tvequals.com/2015/05/31/nurs … de-708-11/

If you happen to find out more about this artist, would you share it with us? It would be appreciated, thank you!
