After a introspective period in his career, in 1948 Brands becomes a member of the Dutch Experimental group REFLEX, which later, as regards a number of artists, ends up in CoBrA. His meeting with Willem Sandberg, former director of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, leads to the exhibition in which CoBrA presents itself for the first time in 1949 in the Netherlands. Brands left CoBrA a year after its foundation in 1949 to retire to his studio for the next 10 years and to be inspired by ‘the world of the child’. He discovers a special technique for this, namely oil paint on paper.
