Warren Brandt
“Female Nude Study”

Circa 1975


Original pencil and charcoal figure study on brown sketch paper of two nude women. Signed middle bottom. Condition: Good. Circa 1975. Overall measurement in pewter color thin metal frame with white mate 18 by 21.25 inches. Mr. Brandt was born in Greensboro, N.C., and moved to New York after high school, attending Pratt Institute at night. He studied with Yasuo Kuniyoshi at the Art Students League and, after five years as an official portraitist in the Army during World War II, continued his education under the G.I. Bill. He studied with Philip Guston and Max Beckmann at Washington University in St. Louis. All the while he kept close ties with Abstract Expressionists in New York, and his art reflected their influence. With his wife, Carolyn Coker, he traveled widely in the 1950's, throughout Europe and back and forth from New York to North Carolina and Mississippi, where Mr. Brandt held teaching positions. In 1960, after he and his wife were divorced, he married Grace Borgenicht, an artist and art dealer in New York who had a gallery on 57th Street and was an early champion of contemporary American art. Mr. Brandt moved to New York and made a radical change in his art, developing a Matissesque style in nudes, still lifes and scenes from his studio.
