Eugène Brands

Dutch 1913-2002 

Eugène Brands was born in Amsterdam and attended the Amsterdam School of the Arts where he studied commercial art. From early on in his career, Brands experimented with painting and language and created assemblages from found objects. He briefly joined the European avant-garde art movement CoBrA, but spent most of his career working on his own. Brands was influenced by Automatism, the automatic writing developed by the Surrealists, and was intrigued by nature and the cosmos. He was a free-thinker, writer, and poet. His paintings are colourful, and created with child-like marks and gestures.

Brands’ work was displayed in 1946 at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, in 1949 he exhibited in the International Exhibition of Experimental Art, and his work is regularly showcased at the Museum Jan van der Togt in Amstelveen near Amsterdam.
