George Loring Brown
American, 1814-1889

Often referred to as “Claude” Brown because of his admiration for and emulation of landscapes of Claude Lorrain. His picturesque scenes, populated by peasants and classical monuments, and set in and around Florence, Rome, Naples and Venice, brought him much attention. These romantic views particularly appealed to Americans making the grand tour of Europe.
