BROWN, John George, artist, born in Durham, England, 11 November, 1831. He studied in Newcastle-on-Tyne and in the royal Scottish academy, where he received a medal in the antique class in 1853. During the same year he came to the United States and studied in the National Academy of Design in New York. He has received medals in Boston and in San Francisco. In 1863 he was chosen a mere-bet of the National Academy, and in 1866 was among the original members of the Water-Color Society, serving during several years as its vice-president. He was actively interested in the "Artists' Fund," and filled a similar place in that organization. Mr. Brown has made a specialty of American subjects. Among his best-known works are "His First Cigar," "Curling in Central Park" (1876); " The Passing Show" (1877); " The Dress Parade" ; " The Three (Scape) Graces"; " The 'Longshoreman's Noon" (1880); "A Merry Air and a Sad Heart" (1880); "The Thrilling Moment " (1881); " The Old Folks at Home" (1882); and "A Jolly Lot" (1885).
