Warren Brandt: Paintings from the Permanent Collection

  • Jun 6, 2004 – Aug 8, 2004

The work of widely-acclaimed artist and Greensboro native, Warrent Brandt, will be presented in an exhibition of paintings drawing from the Weatherspoon's collection. Included in the exhibition are two recent gifts that have not been shown locally. The last exhibition of Brandt's work at the Weatherspoon was the 1992 retrospective that subsequently traveled to Florida and New York.

Brandt earned his MFA degree from UNCG in 1953. He also studid in St. Louis with Philip Guston and Max Beckmann and in New York City with Yasuo Kuniyoshi. In New York, Brandt established close ties with the leading Abstract Expressionist painters. His work from the late 1950's through the 1960's reflects the influence of artists such as Willem de Kooning, who explored the emotional and psychological power of brilliant, freely-applied color. Warren Brandt: Paintings from the Permanent Collection is part of a series focusing on individual artists that the Museum has collected in depth; a group that includes John Graham, Eva Hesse, and Sol LeWitt. Brandt's career, so distinguished, urbane, and productive, is a source of continued pride for the UNCG and Greensboro arts communities. 

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
