Muriel Brandt (born 1909, Belfast, now Northern Ireland, d. 1981, Dublin, Ireland) was an Irish artist. She studied at the Belfast College of Art and at the Royal College of Art in London, where she was elected Associate Royal College of Art (ARCA) in 1937. She married and settled in Dublin, living mainly in Sutton, Dublin and painted mural decorations, portraits and landscapes, as well as working in oil and watercolours. She was elected to the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) in 1962.[1] She was commissioned to paint the portraits of many Dublin notables, among them Sir Alfred Chester Beatty. She also painted the panels in the Franciscan church of Adam and Eve, on Merchant's Quay, Dublin.[2] Her daughter was also an artist, Ruth Brandt.[3]
