Artist Biography

Alexander Hellier Berens (1865-1959) was considered cultured, patrician and well-travelled. Born in 1865, he trained as an artist, sculptor and leatherworker in France and Belgium before travelling throughout Africa (with the explorer and academic, Sir Richard Burton) and the Far East, supporting himself by working as a cowboy, ship’s steward and private detective, as well as through his artwork.


In 1893 he married and went to live in Morocco, but his first wife died three years later. He married again in 1898 and he and his wife moved back to the UK where they lived until his death in 1959.


Between them they made a treasure trove of artisan crafts that has since been largely forgotten, but for two examples held by the Victoria and Albert Museum. He also exhibited at the RA in 1888.
