Cynthia Brants

Brants Up The RiverCynthia Brants (1924-2006) was an artist who worked in a Modernist vein as a painter, printmaker and sculptor. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, she was educated at The Madeira School and Sarah Lawrence College. While attending Sarah Lawrence, Cynthia took evening printmaking classes at Stanley William Hayter’s Atelier 17, which was then located at the New School for Social Research in New York City. She was associated with the Modernist artists of the Fort Worth Circle.

Brants taught art at Sarah Lawrence and at Texas Woman’s University. In the late 1970s, she moved to Granbury, Texas, where she built a house on Lake Granbury that housed her painting studio and renovated a downtown building as a printmaking studio.

Brants’s work is in private and museum collections throughout the state and nation. The Cynthia Brants Trust operates out of her former printmaking studio where works can be viewed and purchased by appointment. The Trust is charged with disseminating, through sales, the works of art from the estate of Cynthia Brants. Proceeds from those sales are distributed to non-profit organizations, as designated by Cynthia Brants.
