(1876 - 1949)
Horace Brown was active/lived in Vermont, Illinois. Horace Brown is known for landscape and still life painting, illustration.
A student of the American Impressionist master Willard Metcalf, Horace Brown was perhaps his finest pupil and closest friend. As remarked in the epic monograph on Metcalf, Sunlight and Shadow, the Life and Works of Willard Metcalf, at a time when Metcalf's wife left him, it was Brown, a state senator of Vermont, who reintroduced Metcalf to the joys of depicting on canvas the scenic vistas of the Green Mountains.
Brown's works can be characterized by divisionistic brushwork and a simple but direct composition. It has been a hallmark of the greatest American paintings to be simple and direct in the composition, much like the clear and concise way Ernest Hemingway wrote, and Brown is no exception.
