Horace Brown (American, 1876-1949) - a pair of landscape paintings by this Springfield, VT artist: one being a signed work of a wooden outbuilding in summer and the second a view of a saltbox cabin in winter, which is unsigned but also has an unfinished sketch of a farm building painted on the verso. Each is painted in oils on artist board and measures 12 inches x 16 inches. Circa 1940. Horace Brown is known for his impressionistic depictions of the Vermont countryside. He was born in Rockford, Illinois and studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and at the Art Institute of Chicago. He was a pupil of Willard Metcalf and John Carlson. In 1902, Brown inherited "North Mowing," a family farm in North Springfield, Vermont. Both of these paintings came from the estate of the artist. Condition is excellent and each is offered in a modern frame.
