Breer, Robert (American painter, sculptor, and filmmaker, 1926-2011)

Note: Son of an inventor and automotive engineer, Breer is known for experimentation with a range of film and animation techniques. Breer was drawn to film through painting in the early 1950s while living in Paris. His interest in geometric abstraction is evident in his first films, which explored the role of movement in the understanding of form and space. He also created kinetic sculptures, which he called 'floats' in two separate periods of his career.
