Victor Brauner

Victor Brauner

(1903 - 1966)
Born: Piatra Neamtz, Romania
Style: Surrealism
Famous Works:
  • Self-portrait with Enucleated Eye (1931)
  • Fascination (1939)
  • Prelude to a Civilization (1954)
Born and raised in Romania, Victor Brauner spent most of his career in France. His father practiced spiritualism when Brauner was a child, and Brauner, too, was interested in occult practices and unconventional religions. Brauner started his career as a painter and sculptor in his native Romania, where he studied at the School of Fine Arts in Bucharest and even had a solo exhibition at the Galerie Mozart. A move to Paris in 1930 brought him into contact with fellow countryman Constantin Brancusi, who introduced him to several members of the Surrealist movement, including Yves Tanguy. Brauner joined the movement in 1933 and subsequently exhibited at Galerie Pierre. While he worked in several styles throughout his career, Brauner's trademark was free flowing shapes and forms. These hallucinatory shapes included animals, genitals, birds, and people enacting unlikely scenes of a highly absurd nature, representations of the mysterious world of Brauner's imagination. This illogical approach included Brauner's sympathy to the magical. For several years he repeatedly explored the image of bloodied and mutilated eyes. In 1938 in a bar fight the artist lost his left eye, displaying an uncannily prophetic sensibility. The outcome of Brauner's work was an unconstrained access to the subconscious. This unpredictable and chaotic style became overwhelmingly popular, and Brauner represented France at the Venice Biennale in 1966.

This product was great. I painted my glass vases golden with this spray paint. I also painted my plum tree trunk with golden Krylon Premium Metallic Spray paint.

I received a pot of gold and one of silver in a "hand me down" box from a friend that included a variety of paints and other art treasures! So I do not know how old these products are. I tried the gold right away on an embossed piece I had laying around and was amazed at how beautiful it worked out. I have been using another gold product in the past, and it is no where near as beautiful as this. I am a believer, and will use Treasure gold forever!

I love your soy paints for my crafts. Sadly this product is no longer available at Joanne's or any other craft stores I visit. This paint is true in color, dries quickly, and if you need to cover up a mistake or start over, this paint covers up better than any other brand I have used. Especially your white onion and mushroom are a life saver for all projects. I do not understand why this product is not more popular. I brag about it all the time, especially to the craft stores. If you are a true crafter your paint, is important. Your soy paints are pure quality for all my project, and I am sad to not see them on the shelves anymore! Big Mistake; if only they had tried just one bottle of this wonderful product. That was how I learned how good they were by giving them a try.
