André Brasilier is a French painter and printmaker whose work is typified by a breezy lyricism, wherein real-life subjects are transposed into dreamlike settings. Brasilier’s images portray a peaceful world, with delicate compositional and color harmonies bathed in soft, cool light. He takes significant aesthetic and philosophical inspiration from Japanese prints, with his paintings often featuring pastoral scenes, musical instruments, the sea, women, and horses.

Andre Brasilier Les Roses de l’Etang exhibits Brasilier’s interest in portraying women and the his appreciation for Japanese prints that provided him with a significant aesthetic and philosophical inspiration.

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.  Brasilier’s art is known around the world, from Japan to the United States.  He was recently the subject of an exhibition/retrospective at St. Petersburg, Russia’s Hermitage Museum.

Born on October 29, 1929 in Saumur, France to an artistic family where both of his parents were painters, Brasilier attended the École des Beaux-Arts at the age of 20. He has had major retrospectives at both the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the Museum Haus Ludwig für Kunstausstellungen Saarlois in Germany. Brasilier continues to live in Paris, France.

Andre Brasilier B. 1929 in Samur, France Lives and works in Paris André Brasilier was born into an artistic family in Samur, France in 1929. Possessing a natural inclination for painting at an early age, at twenty he went to Paris to study at the École de Beaux-Arts. In 1952 he received a grant from the Florence Blumenthal Foundation, and in the following year, when he was only 23, won the Premier Grand Prix de Rome, entitling him to study at the Académie de France in Rome. While Brasilier’s works reflect the influences of expressionist artists and Japanese prints, he has retained a personal style of schematized nature and imagery that makes him anomaly in the contemporary zeitgeist. His subdued works often feature themes and motifs of horses, nature, music and women, provocative in their timelessness and emotional subjectivity. Set against the most simplistic and romantic backgrounds, the artist effortlessly transports us into surreal landscapes, lightening the soul with dreamy infusions of figures set in modest hues of colour, shape and form. In an intimate communion with nature, Brasilier draws his inspiration from its language, sounds and colours, reminding us of a natural beauty untouched by daily trivialities and events. Brasilier had his first retrospective of one hundred artworks from 1950-1980 at the Château de Chenonceau in 1980 and a retrospective exhibition at the Musée Picasso-Château Grimaldi in Antibes, the French Riviera, in 1988. He has since been honoured with major retrospectives both at Russia’s renowned State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg in 2005 and at the Museum Haus Ludwig für Kunstausstellungen Saarlois in Germany in 2007.
