Painter, sculptor and Surrealist poet Victor Brauner was trained in Romania, Austria and France. Going through several stages - dadaist, abstractionist, expressionist, his work is infused by the realm of dreams and the unconscious, with an emphasis on occultism. Ranging from mythologies to ancient world cultures, his art constitutes itself as a fertile melange of sources that find their meeting point in Surrealism. In 1966, Brauner was invited to represent France at the Venice Biennale.

His works are included in some of the most important collections worldwide, including the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation in Venice, Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection and the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
