This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An English painter from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Arthur Brown appeared in Yellowstone National Park in July 1883, and finished about 20 watercolors. When the editors of the Livingston, Montana newspaper saw the paintings they were quite impressed.

Brown was much in need of money and determined to take the paintings back to England along with specimens of wood and rocks from Yellowstone and use them as props in lectures-for-fee that he would deliver to audiences. They were shown on English stages with illumination and were referred to as sun pictures. However, they are lost to posterity as is much specific information about the life of this artist.

He did return to the Park in 1885 and reportedly sold his paintings to the Northern Pacific Railroad. However, the Railroad has no record of ownership.
