Deborah Brown (b.1927) Born in Belfast, she enrolled at the Belfast College of Art in 1946, spending only twelve months there before switching to the National College of Art in Dublin. Upon completing her formal studies in 1950 she went to Paris for a year, absorbing the lessons of the Old Masters whilst simultaneously stimulated by contemporary trends in art. Upon returning to Belfast in 1951 she met with great success when the Arts Council of Northern Ireland gave her a solo show in their gallery at Donegal Place. Anne Crookshank has noted of Brown’s work of this period: “her painting was still realist, if already notably simplified, and great attention was focused on the forms created by the brushstrokes”1. In this sense it was typical of much of the best work being produced in Belfast at the time by artists such as Basil Blackshaw and T. P. Flanagan, who in turn were influenced by the slightly older generation of artists who had styled themselves in the thirties as the Ulster Unit. 1 Deborah Brown: A Selected Exhibition of Works Completed Between 1947 – 1982, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Belfast, 1982, unpaginated Source: Whyte's Auction
