The North View

Born in Rockford and a perpetual friend of the Rockford Art Association, Horace Brown became one of the noted impressionist painters of the Vermont countryside. His is father’s career with Spalding’s took him from Rockford to Chicago, Michigan, Massachusetts and New Jersey.  In  1903, Horace Brown became the owner of North Mowing, a farm in North Springfield Vermont, which had been in the Brown family since the 1700’s. He was a student of Willard Metcalf for two years in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and was noted for having “all the bigness of grasp and technical finish of American paintings of this type, but with a more refined and personal point of view.”—critique of an exhibition at the Thurber Gallery, Chicago, from the Chicago Evening Post
