(1869 - 1947)
Matilda (Van Wyck) Browne was active/lived in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey. Matilda Browne is known for farm landscape, floral and animal-genre painting.
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Matilda Browne is noted for her farm and
cattle scenes, which has led to her being compared to the French woman
painter of cattle, Rosa Bonheur. Browne also did floral paintings
but her reputation was for her ability to paint cows as though they
were actually standing in the field. A child protege, she
received early art training from her artist-neighbor, Thomas Moran,
from Elizabeth and Kate Greatorex, and Frederick Freer who came from
Philadelphia to give her lessons.
Browne studied in Paris,
beginning 1889, with Julian Dupre, "one of the great French painters of
cattle", and then went to Holland. There she bought a cow to use
as a model. Painting this animal in a pose ... Displaying 750 of 3840 characters.
