Anne Bremer was an American modern painter known for her still lifes and landscapes. Combining elements from Post-Impressionism, Cubism, and Futurism, Bremer was praised for her use of vibrant colors and dramatic linework. Born in San Francisco, Bremer studied painting in Paris and returned as a strong crusader for modernist art. At the turn of the century, her avant-garde approach departed greatly from the more accepted, academic style of that period. Her early works are moody, tonal pieces akin to those of American artist James McNeill Whistler, while those after 1911 are influenced by Post-Impressionist expressiveness. Her depictions of the Northern California coast are among her most striking, emphasizing vivid colors as well as distorted form and perspective to enhance their dramatic effect.
