Andre Brasilier (French born 1929)
Born into an artistic family in 1929, Andre Brasilier has spent more than half a century creating canvasses that are a blend of abstraction, expressionism, and something distinctly his own. His works often feature themes and motifs such as horses, nature, music, and women. Brasiliers art is known around the world, from Japan to the United States. He was recently the subject of an exhibition/retrospective at St. Petersburg, Russias Hermitage Museum.
