Artist Biography

André Brasilier

(1929 - )

Table of Contents

    Born in 1929 to a family of artists, André Brasilier grew up in the Loire Valley—an arcadian landscape that would heavily influence his work. Brasilier studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris where he received numerous accolades, including the Grand Prix de Rome in 1953. His paintings most commonly depict dreamlike pastoral scenes with horses often reappearing throughout his oeuvre. Brasilier’s wife and muse, Chantal, is also a repeated subject, often portrayed arranging flowers. His canvases employ bright colors, ethereal shapes, and a flatness that verges on abstraction. Throughout his career, Brasilier has exhibited across the world, including a retrospective exhibition in 2005 at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. His work is now found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Art. He currently lives and works in Paris.
