Aesthetic, exclusive, emotive... When Bernd Lehmann talks about his works of art, these adjectives just come bubbling out. No wonder. After all, the skilled lithographer is a passionate artist and his creative output evokes more than a sober recognition by the observant beholder.
The artist gained his fame on account of his etchings on the literary oeuvres of Hans Christian Andersen, Rainer Maria Rilke and Adelbert von Chamisso. In his studio situated in the Lüneburg Heath in Northern Germany the 55-year-old artist developed his artistic skills into creations that reach out far beyond the normal two-dimensional interpretation of art, thus enthralling connoisseurs of literature and art alike.
Having previously focused on roses, wine bottles and portraits, this imaginative German artist has been proving his creative powers by producing etchings of the most noble of motor vehicles. The German-British marque Bentley has inspired Lehmann to create these remarkable etchings. The fact that a Bentley car is always a fascinating object is shown by the existence of countless drawings, photographs and models dating from many decades.
Lehmann carries on this tradition with his impressive series "Retro meets Classic". Lehmann's supreme skill and practised eye for shapes, lines and technical details bring the works of art to life. What the automobile enthusiast calls the "soul of his vehicle" (though this may frequently give rise to mirth) is brought to the fore. Exclusive-Life displays some of Bernd Lehmann's exclusive works.

pictures into a metalsurface to create a design in intaglio just like
the old masters Rembrandt or Dürer did. He inks the metal plate with one
color and puts it with a moistened sheet of paper in a high pressure
printing press. The numbers of the crafted impressions are low to keep
up the value. Every single print will be finished in a special way and
colored as may be necessary. So every print is a genuine original.
