George de Forest Brush Paintings Reproduction & Biography

Raised in Danbury, Connecticut, George de Forest Brush became a figure and portrait painter, especially of Plains Indian subjects whose tribal customs and traditions he depicted in a romantic style. Unlike his peers, Frederic Remington and Charles Russell, he was not interested in dramatic scenes but painted daily life, which presented a new aspect of these people to eastern viewers. He also painted "modern madonnas" or straightforward portraits of women, often with his wife, Mittie, and his children as the models.
