Bernhardt Wall (USA)


Bernhardt Wall, born in 1872, was a Connecticut Yankee. He wintered in La Porte, Texas, his wife's family home, for many years. Bernhardt Wall was mainly an etcher who illustrated many books. In the mid-1930s he produced at least three books of copper-plate engravings during his annual Texas sojourns: Following General Sam Houston, 1793 - 1863 (1935), Following Stephen F. Austin, Father of Texas (1936) and Following Andrew Jackson (1937). During the First World War Bernhardt Wall designed a large number of patriotic / comic postcards, "mocking" Germany. After his wife's death in 1938, Wall went back to Connecticut, where he later remarried. He lived his own last years in Sierra Madre, California and he died in 1956.
