This clip I believe is in german, but its has a great collection of paintings by the Andre Brasilier starting 23 seconds into the clip.

Winner of Prix de Rome.

Price range information: Most works are in oils and priced $15,000 to $80,000. Most lithographs range from a few hundred to a $2,000. Watercolors and gouache works range $400 to $4,000.

Brasilier passed away in 2004.

The aspect I enjoy most about the artist is the paint quality of the work. What you might think is a watercolor or gouache work is really an oil painting though he did produce works in both watercolor and gouache.

Brasilier’s ¬†works with the horse and landscape remind one slightly of Montana painter Theodore Waddell but with a higher focus on drawing skill. An example of Waddell’s work is below. Waddell is famous for working with animals and the landscape in a very abstract manner.
