This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Marion B. Brown (1913-May 27, 1995)

"Marion B. Brown, a prominent Long Island watercolorist died of cancer Saturday at her Freeport home.  She was 81.  Mrs. Brown won her first gold medal as a painter at age 8 in a Westinghouse competition.  She was a professional artist and art instructor who specialized in land and seascapes and taught students in Lynbrook, Malverne and Garden City through last year. (1994)  She was represented by Garden City Galleries Ltd.

Mrs. Brown grew up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn and lived in Freeport (LI) for more than 40 years.  She was a graduate of Pratt Institute of Fine Arts and studied with the late Edgar A. Whitney.  She was noted for her subtle use of color and suggestive rather than stark treatment of subjects.  A friend told her on one occasion that as he looked at the dawn from a cold marsh while duck hunting, he found himself saying "Now there's a Marion Brown sky".

Mrs. Brown was recipient of numerous honors.  She also was one of 12 watercolorists and the only woman whose work was selected for reproductions in the Franklin Mint Gallery of American Art Limited Edition Portfolio, bringing a cash prize with the gold medal.  Mrs. Brown, who had a love of nature and concern for the environment and was an avid gardener, was exhibited extensively in regional and national art shows.  Her work has appeared in 33 states.  Reproductions of her painting were on calendars sponsored by the Dime Savings Bank from 1963 to 1981."

Obituary from an unnamed source submitted as a bulletin by May Barrell, one of the artist's students.
