Paul Desmond Brown

Paul Brown was an American illustrator of equestrian subjects although he was never formally trained as an artist.  He is primarily known for his paintings, drawings and sketches of horses and equestrian sports.  He is also well-known for his over three decades of illustrations for Brooks Brothers catalogs including more than one-thousand drawings.  These illustrations made him a major influence on the image of urban males in twentieth-century America.

With Paul Brown's art, color is only an occasional adjunct playing a very secondary role to the use of the hard-edged line.  His style has a calculated simplicity, a
casual appearance, but is very carefully contrived and executed with much authority.Displaying 750 of 2487 characters.
