Frederick Brosen’s watercolors have been featured in over 30 solo museum and gallery exhibitions across the country, most recently at Hirschl and Adler Modern in NYC in February 2020, his sixth solo show with the gallery. In Spring 2024 the Museum of the City of New York will exhibit a series of large watercolors depicting the four seasons in Central Park.
His watercolors have been the subject of numerous solo museum exhibitions, in 2012 at the South Street Seaport Museum, in 2006 at the Museum of the City of New York and in 2002 at the Frye Museum in Seattle. The exhibition American Dreamland: Coney Island featured two of his large works and traveled to several museums across the country, ending in 2016 at the Brooklyn Museum.
In 2006 a monograph on his NYC watercolors, Still New York, with an introduction by Ric Burns, was published by Vendome Press, and in 2012 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by his alma mater, The City College of New York. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including two Pollack-Krasner Grants. His work is in the permanent collection of over 20 museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Historical Society, the Museum of the City of New York and the Frye Museum in Seattle. His work has been represented by Hirschl and Adler modern since 2005.
His teaching credits over the last 35 years include the National Academy of Design, Pratt Institute, Lehman College and for the last several years at the Art Students League of New York, where he continues to conduct workshops throughout the year. He conducts yearly travel workshops, including a planned April 2023 Florence adventure. Private individual lessons are also available via Zoom or in person.
Mr. Brosen is proud to have been designated an ARC Associate Living Master last year.
In August this year a group of his Provincetown watercolors will be shown at the William-Scott Gallery there.
