Signed Lower Left "Warren"
A substantial, mid-century Modernist seascape showing fishing boats moored on San Francisco Bay with a view towards the span of the Golden Gate Bridge.
A native San Franciscan and founder of the San Francisco Art Cooperative, Warren first studied at Milligan College and, later, with Jack Davis, Ralph Ledesma, and Raymond Brose among others. Throughout the 1950s and 60s, he taught art on the Matson Line and, in 1964, was honored as one of four Americans named Life Fellow of Britain's Royal Society of Artists (FRSA). Over a long career, Warren Brandon exhibited widely and with success, including at the Frye Museum in Seattle and the San Francisco Museum of Art, and was the recipient of numerous medals, prizes and juried awards.
