This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine, 1914-1971, Philip Wass Brown spent the greater part of his life there.  He attended Bates College for  three years in Lewiston, Maine.  A few months spent at the A. K. Cross summer school in Boothbay Harbor provided him with his only art education. 

Mr. Brown had four one-man shows in Providence, Rhode Island, and one in Boston, Massachusetts.  His work was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia; in the Eggleston Gallery, New York City; Symphony Hall and the Fine Arts Festival, Boston; the Invitation Shows at the Maine Art Festival in Augusta; the Rhode Island League of Arts and Crafts, where he also served as Art Director, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, and the Providence Art Club, where he took first prize in a national drawing show. 

He was one of fifty artists whose work was chosen from the "100 Artists of the Twentieth Century", shown at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, to tour the country in 1964-65.
