Karl Brandner

Karl Brandner was an early member of the Palette. He was born in 1898 and died in 1961. There is a snow scene by Brandner hanging in the dining room of the club. It's a favorite of mine.

Brandner specialized in snow scenes, apparently, and you can find a number of examples of them on the internet. He was also an etcher, which endears him to me. I've found an etching by him as well.

Brandner is listed as a member in an early 1950's flyer from the Palette. He won the Gold Medal in 1936--maybe for the painting in the dining room of the club.
