The shifting universe of Robert Breer traversed several major French and American avant-garde movements. Working as an abstract painter in the 1950s—influenced by Vasarely, Tinguely, and Soto—Breer quickly turned to making animated films then, in the mid-1960s, began inventing moving objects, as though to assert his desire to take painting out of the frame and avoid all static images.
