Author Biography
Churchward, Charles (Author)
Rosamond Bernier was born Rosamond Margaret Rosenbaum in Germantown, Pennsylvania on October 1, 1916. She was educated by French governesses and spent a few years at an English boarding school before attending Sarah Lawrence College. She dropped out at the age of 19 to marry Lewis A. Riley Jr., a wealthy land developer she met on a trip to Mexico. They divorced in 1943.

In 1946, she became Vogue's Paris-based European features editor and worked for art magazines. Two years later she married Georges Bernier, a journalist. In 1955, they founded L'Oeil (The Eye), a bilingual monthly magazine. A subsidiary produced 16 art books under the Bernier imprint. After her second marriage ended, she moved to New York and eventually became a television personality and art lecturer. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, she interviewed artists and narrated documentaries on CBS and PBS. She won a Peabody Award for two programs on the Pompidou Center in Paris.

In 1975 she married John Russell, the art critic of The New York Times. They collaborated on many writing and television projects. She wrote several books including Matisse, Picasso, Miro: As I Knew Them and Some of My Lives: A Scrapbook Memoir. She died on November 9, 2016 at the age of 100.
