|Anne M. Bremer (1868-1923)|
Anne M. Bremer was born in San Francisco, California on May 21, 1868 of German parents. Anne Bremer began her art studies locally at the Mark Hopkins Institute and Art Students League under Emil Carlsen and Arthur Mathews followed by study in Paris with Andre Lhote and Moderne and La Palette. After her studies, Bremer was a strong crusader for the modern art movement. At the turn of the century her avant garde approach departed greatly from the more accepted, academic style of that period. Her painting specialties were the old barns, dilapidated buildings, and landscapes of Saratoga, San Jose, Monterey and Belvedere as well as portraits and still lifes. A lifelong resident of San Francisco, she died there on October 26, 1923, a victim of leukemia.
