Kunstwerken kopen van de Franse kunstenaar André Brasilier

Brasilier André

André Brasilier is a French artist born in 1929 in Saumur. He is a painter and graphic artist. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Art in Paris. In 1952 he received the Florence Blumenthal Award and the Prix de Rome for painting the following year. He lived in the Villa Medicis in Rome from 1954 to 1957. He currently lives and works in Paris. The lyrical, dreamy paintings of André Brasilier combine abstraction and expressionism and explore an intimate connection with nature. Horses - described by Brasilier as "a fantastic creation...full of symbolism, strength, dynamism and beauty" - are prominent, their elegant forms galloping through serene seascapes, cold winter forests and dazzling sunsets. The artist's wife and muse, Chantal, is also a beloved subject, often portrayed delicately arranging flowers. Brasilier had its first retrospective of one hundred works of art from 1950-1980 at the Château de Chenonceau in 1980 and a retrospective at the Musée Picasso-Château Grimaldi in Antibes, on the French Riviera, in 1988. Since then, he has been honored with major retrospectives, both in the renowned Russian State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg in 2005 and in the Museum Haus Ludwig für Kunstausstellungen Saarlois in Germany in 2007.
