Józef Brandt was a Polish painter during the late 19th and early 20th centuries who was particularly celebrated for his battle scenes. The Frederic Remington of Poland, Brandt was an incredibly prolific artist who managed to tell a story with every painting.
Not Much Info
Like many of the non-English artists, I don’t possess the language skills to learn much about Brandt. However, I did discover that he was talked out of being an engineer by Juliusz Kossok and he later started an art school in Munich for young Polish artists.
I call Brandt the Polish Remington because he seemed to love the horse as much as their rider as a subject & his art centers on colorful characters.
More Horse Art?
This is just the first of several posts full of Józef Brandt’s work, like I said he was one prolific artist. If you liked these, stay tuned in the next few weeks for part 2. Until then check out more horses of the masters.
