Art Brokerage: Wendell Brown American Artist: b. 1941. Wendell Brown, was born 1941 in Berkeley, California. Brown stands among America's elite of the finest contemporary seascape painters. Interested in art from an early age, Brown decided at nineteen to become a professional artist. As he had no means of gaining formal training, he resolved to spend his weekends learning all that he could about art. He visited galleries, museums and libraries, reading and studying as much as possible. Brown is demanding of himself and only produces a few works each year. For each square inch of his canvases reveals countless strokes and color applications, each playing a role of enormous importance in the end result. And out of all of the elements that make for a masterpiece, Brown firmly believes that color is the most critical of components and explains that "through color, I create perspective, motion and a feeling of detail". His compositions often focus on sandy terraces that abruptly drop off into sea-chewed shores, sheltered beaches, and turbulent waters, breaking and swirling into a blur of white foam. Whether Brown features a relentless, battering sea, a heavy fog encroaching upon a dramatic coastal cliff or an ungainly cypress twisted by ocean gales, he intends each painting to be a masterpiece in its own right.
