This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography is submitted by Wayne Kielsmeier and is from Minnesota Print and Print Makers, 1900-1945 by Robert Crump.

"Born in Berlin, Wisconsin, Brown worked as an iron moulder and played professional basketball with the Toledo Mudhens. He lived in St. Paul from the mid 1920's until his death in 1954. A conscientious objector in World War I, Brown had his most productive period in the 1930's, when much of his work reflected the social and economic problems of that time and
focused on urban or industrial scenes.

His paintings have been described as some of the finest examples of Depression era art. During his travel to Europe he was influenced by Honore Daumier, Peter Paul Reubens, El Greco, Diego Rivera and Paul Cezeanne. It appears that Brown created his lithographs while enrolled in the Minnesota WPA Federal Art Project. His work was re-discovered in 1985 after years in storage."

He studied at the St. Paul School of Art, Art Students League, Minnesota Artists Union and with Robert Henri in Europe. He was a Member of the Minnesota Artists Association, Minnesota Artists Union and American Artists Congress.

He exhibited at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Art Institute of Chicago, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Public Works of Art Project National Exhibition of Art, 1934, and Minnesota State Fair.
