Brutalist Steel Sculpture
Arthur Burton Kern (1921 - 2018)
Arthur Burton Kern, M.D., of Pawtucket, RI.
Dr. Kern was passionate about art. He and his wife Sybil have been credited by fellow collectors with essentially creating the field of American folk art as we know it. For more than four decades they collected the works of, and researched the identities of, early American itinerant portrait painters, who previously had been either unknown or misattributed. The two of them authored over 30 articles on this topic in national publications. Dr. Kern was also an exhibiting sculptor for many years.
