Abstract: Bernstein polynomials in one variable are known to be total-variation diminishing when compared to the approximated function f. Here we consider the two variable case and give a counterexample to show they are not area-diminishing. Sufficient conditions are then given on a continuous function f to insure convergence in area. A similar theorem is proved for Kantorovitch polynomials in the case f is summable.
