William Brice

William Brice (April 23, 1921 – March 3, 2008) was an artist known for his large-scale abstract paintings.Born to actress Fannie Brice and professional gambler Nick Arnstein, April 23, 1921, he spent his early years living with his mother and his sister Frances (later the wife of producer Ray Stark), while their father was in prison on a variety of charges stemming from a history of thefts, swindles and confidence schemes. Artists such as Clifford Odets and the Gershwin brothers were frequent visitors. His talent was recognized early, and even in childhood, he had the services of a private art tutor. Important influences included then-active artists Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, (one of whose works Brice acquired at the age of fourteen).
Their mother, pursuing a career in radio, moved them to Beverly Hills. There he attended the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles (1937–39, 1940–42), as well as the Art Students League of New York in New York City (1939–40). His first solo show of paintings and drawings was presented at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 1947. The early work was figural and representational. A 1950 L.A. Times review of his solo exhibition at the Frank Perls Gallery (Beverly Hills) praises the still lifes «that stress the geometrical aspects of common objects.” Over time, he moved in the direction of greater abstraction, but rejected more progressive movements such as Abstract Expressionism and Action Painting.
