John Appleton Brown
John Appleton Brown (1844-1902)
John Appleton Brown was born on Bostons North Shore, and spent most of his time studying and working in the Boston area. Between his brief training in France and his associations with fellow Boston painters William Morris Hunt and J. Foxcroft Cole, Browns style developed, showing the influence of the Barbizon school. Brown is best known for his pastoral landscapes depicting the bucolic New England countryside in soft pastel tones.
