brandt vertical Fredric Brandt's Appearance and the Culture of Criticism
Tomorrow, friends and colleagues will gather at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center to remember Fredric Brandt, who died on April 5 at his home in Florida. Organizers of the memorial sought a space with enough seats for all the friends, colleagues, and patients who admired the dermatologist for his professional accomplishments and adored him for his kindness and irreverent spirit. Of course, the admiration and fame Brandt earned at the height of his career came with a downside: the many people who judged him for the way he looked.
