Art Brokerage: George Loring Brown American Artist: February 2, 1814 – June 25, 1889. He was an American landscape painter. He was born in Boston and a first studied wood engraving under Alonzo Hartwell and worked as an illustrator. He studied painting with Washington Allston, but soon went to Europe, residing principally in Italy for years. The motives of his pictures are usually Italian, and there is nothing specifically American about them either in treatment or sentiment. Their composition is good, the coloring harmonious, but they are spoiled by being too theatrical. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
