Stéphane Courtot Brandin a.k.a. "Brandin", miniaturist painter.

I am working, exhibiting and selling my artwork since 1997 in my studio gallery, "Galerie 12" in Castillon, an artists' village on the French Riviera near Menton.

I interpret with my own original vision the work of the Dutch masters of the 17th century mostly in the still life genre, in a miniature format.

My paintings take a long time to be completed because I use an oil glazing technique that requires many steps and drying intervals. Each painting is unique with its own story, I strive to create something new each time, while maintaining the continuity of my own style.
