David Berndt was born and educated in Wilmington, Delaware. His father, Bayard T. Berndt, was the leading figure of the city’s storied art community for several decades prior to his death in 1987. After a stint in the Army, David worked with his father at Hardcastle Galleries and became its proprietor when his father retired in 1978. David’s knowledge of the Brandywine River School of Art and the Brandywine Valley artists who are carrying on the tradition established by Howard Pyle, N.C Wyeth, and Frank Schoonover is unsurpassed.
