Benjamin Chambers Brown (1865-1942).
Benjamin Brown was born in Marion, AR. Early in life, Brown was trained as a photographer and in his late teens studied at the St Louis School of Fine Arts under Paul Harney and John Fry. He later studied in Paris at Academie Julian under Laurens and Benjamin-Constant.
During his early career, he moved about and was active in St Louis, Little Rock, and Texas. Earlier, he specialized in portraiture and still lifes; however, upon moving to Pasadena in 1896, he turned his attention to the local landscape. Benjamin Brown’s first etchings were done in 1914 and, with his brother, Howell, he cofounded the Printmakers of Los Angeles, which later became the California Society of Printmakers. Brown died in Pasadena on Jan. 19, 1942. Today he is nationally known for his Impressionist landscapes of the snow-capped Sierra peaks and fields of poppies.
