Hide Profile

Sculptor. Immigrated to New York in 1890 from Lithuania with his family. Studied under his brother, Victor, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Brenner moved to Paris around 1900, entering the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and the Academie Julian. He established a studio in Paris and was included in Gertrude Stein's circle of friends. He was also associated with a small colony of Russian Jews in Paris which included Chaim Soutine, Michel Kikoine, Pinchus Kremegne, and Isaac Pailes. With an American friend, Robert Coady, he owned the Washington Square Gallery in New York, for which he acted as European agent. Rarely satisfied with his own work, few pieces left Brenner's studio.
