Born in Salzburg, Austria in 1943 into a highly artistic family, his relatives were prominent in all fields of the Arts and these influences allowed him to develop his talents from an early age. After university he studied painting under the tuition of Professors Knapp and Steiner. He travelled widely throughout Europe, visiting all the major artistic and cultural centres of achievement. By studying the inherent traditions of the Dutch still life masters to the Italian Renaissance, Rendor fine-tuned his academic methods and created a sophisticated pool of creative inspiration. On his return to Austria he was quickly invited to stage his first major exhibition in Vienna. More opportunities followed from its success and soon Rendor Berger was exhibiting across Europe and the UK. His faithful recreation of the Dutch Old Master painters continues to build a strong foundation of international collectors.
If approaching the gallery from Penrith or the M6 heading East on the A66 there is a major diversion in place to the gallery via Motherby. Instead of this we would recommend taking the first turning right to Newbiggin shortly after the Rheged roundabout, follow the road through the village and then turn left as you come out of the village. Follow the road up the hill past the recycling centre and turn right at the bend where you will see our brown tourist board sign, follow the lane and signs to the gallery. Altenatively take B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke turning left left to the gallery less than a quarter of a mile out of Greystoke.
Otherwise please follow the diversion signs on the A66 - they will successfully get you here but it will take 10 minutes longer.
