A native of Springfield, Massachusetts, June Allard-Berté is one of the country’s foremost portraitist. Her paintings appear internationally in private collections, restaurants and boardrooms of major corporations.
With her ability to capture emotion in both her formal and informal paintings, Allard-Berté images strike a magical note. Her sense of composition is superb; it is endlessly inventive, elegant and nearly always strikes just the right balance with the subject. It does not overpower or understate the strength of the person or the place.
Private collectors of Allard-Berté paintings have acted on their taste and personal passion. Her work is bold and poetic. For the genre scenes of landscapes, domestic animals, still lifes and people, her work is intimate in a way that the subject matter never could be.
