Biography   Robert Breer


Following is The New York Times obituary of the artist.

Robert Breer, Pioneer of Avant-Garde Animation, Dies at 84
By WILLIAM GRIMES

Robert Breer, an animator whose use of novel techniques to set lines and forms scrambling across the screen opened up a new language for film, died on Aug. 11 at his home in Tucson. He was 84.

His death was confirmed by his wife, Kate Flax.

Mr. Breer, a painter by training, turned to animation after making flip books and stop-action films based on the abstract paintings he produced while living and exhibiting in Paris in the 1950s.

Early on, he saw the potential for breaking with the narrative sequences and anthropomorphic forms that defined the medium.
