Artist Biography

Bestowed with the moniker, ‘Apple-blossom Brown,’ John Appleton Brown was a Boston painter known for his bright meadow scenes of apple blossoms and charming cottages. His pastoral imagery, subtle delicacy of tone, and softened treatment of form were inspired by the French Barbizon mode of painting. Brown exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Boston Art Club, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 where he won a medal. His work can be found at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Addison Gallery
