Bernard Perlin of Ridgefield, a celebrated artist with works in major museum collections, died on Tuesday, Jan. 14, at his home. He was 95 years old and the husband of Edward Newell.
“Every painting is like a book,” Mr. Perlin told The Ridgefield Press last summer. “You write a book about something. And every book is about something different, and has something a different to say. That’s what painting is like.”
