A retired illustrator, classically trained in the late 1940's at the Art Students' League in New York City. He founded the Brandes art school in Los Angeles in the 1980's. A great artist. The school's name was later changed to California Art Institute, and it is located in Westlake Village ( I studied under one of Fred's students, Glen Orbik, who has been teaching at CAI for more than twelve years. (Take a look at Glen's website -- This drawing is a copy of one of Fred's drawings; a study exercise.
