Fritz Brandtner was born in the former German town of Gdańsk (now in Poland). In World War I he fought for the German army, but spent most of his time in captivity as a POW. He then studied in Gdańsk, and was influenced by the great German expressionists and became a painter, draftsman, muralist and teacher. He immigrated to Canada in 1928, settling in Winnipeg and then tried to introduce this style to Canada, eventually succeeding in Montréal, where he had settled in 1934.
