This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The son of tonalist painter George Fuller, Henry Brown Fuller became a highly respected painter of classical and allegorical works. He was a student of Dennis Miller Bunker at the Cowles School in Boston and of William Merritt Chase and Henry Siddons Mowbray at the Art Students League in New York City.

In 1893, he married Lucia Fairchild. They had two children and spent time at the Cornish Art Colony in New Hampshire, arriving in 1897. They were very social at the Colony and built a large home with a swimming pool and tennis court. Two of his most famous paintings were done in Cornish: "Illusions" and "The Triumph of Truth Over Error," the latter being an allegorical illustration of a text from a book by Mary Baker Eddy of the Christian Science movement. This painting, ten feet by eight feet, won the Carnegie Prize in 1908 at the National Academy of Design. In 1915, he also won a silver medal for his painting at the Panama-Pacific Exposition.

In 1919, Fuller invented an etching technique called mellowtint, but he is best remembered for his paintings including portraits. He became President of the United Irish League of America after his friend, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, completed a statue of Charles Parnell, the Irish nationalist leader.

Although both he and his wife were successful professionally and socially, their marriage ended amicably in 1905, one of the reasons being his bouts of severe depression. He left Cornish to live with his mother in Deerfield, Massachusetts.

He died in 1934 in New Orleans.
