Your Price : $40.00

One of the first Impressionist painters to settle in Pasadena, CA, Benjamin Brown began his career as a portrait and figure painting, but under the influence of California’s colorful scenery and its bright light transformed himself into a landscape specialist. The selection of images in this exhibition catalogue include the highly saleable poppy paintings with which Brown achieved his initial success, but also the expansion of his subject matter in the 1920’s to include the Sierra range, the Mojave Desert and coastal scenes, all painted in his exuberant palette of colors but showing his increasing spiritualism as the years passed. The book also includes an essay by Scott Shields, PhD., Chief Curator of the Crocker Museum, and an introduction by Jean Stern.
