|Victor Brauner (1903-1966)
Victor Brauner was born in Piatra Neamt, Romania.
He attended the Art School in Bucharest. In 1924 the Mozart Galleries in Bucharest hosted his first personal exhibition.
In 1933, Andre Breton opened Brauner’s first personal exhibition in Paris, at the Pierre Gallery.
After WWII, he took part to the Venice biannual exhibition.
He created a series of paintings called "lycanthropic" or sometimes "chimeras"
and an ensemble of object-paintings full of inventiveness and vivacity, grouped under the titles "Mythologie" and "Fêtes des mères".
