Raised in Danbury, Connecticut, George de Forest Brush became a figure and portrait painter, especially of Plains Indian subjects whose tribal customs and traditions he depicted in a romantic style. Unlike his peers, Frederic Remington and Charles Russell, he was not interested in dramatic scenes but painted daily life, which presented a new aspect of these people to eastern viewers. He also painted "modern madonnas" or straightforward portraits of women, often with his wife, Mittie, and his chi (showing 500 of 5463 characters).
