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 colour harmonies bathed in soft light. His paintings often featuring pastoral scenes, musical instruments, the sea, women, and horses. 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.
