Geoffrey Brown

b. 1926


“When Brown landed in England preperations for the Festival of Britain were underway; there was an air of vitality of confidence in the arts. But it was not the grand subjects or wealthy scenes that provided Brown with his subject matter. He was an artist drawn to the street life – its musicians, beggars, flower sellers and pub gossipers. Travelling through Europe he sought out great works by the great masters of the genre – Rembrandt, Goya, Daumier and Picasso.” – Roger Butler, Geoffrey Brown – Survey Exhibition 1952 – 1957, 1995, Eastgate Gallery, Melbourne.
