Dalton Brown, American (1939 - )
Alice was born in 1939 in Danville, PA. She depicts realistic
landscapes using oils on canvas, and on occasion, pastels on
paper. Her scenes are so relaxed the viewer is transported
out of their hurried life and into a calmer, more relaxed
Dalton Brown's works are in over 70 private and corporate collections
including AT&T and Westinghouse.
As a contemporary Realist using the medium of either oil on canvas
or pastel on paper, Dalton Brown achieves beautifully detailed
scenes of airy domestic views, breezy porch settings and dappled
seascapes which inspire a romantic, meditative mood. Her light-filled
interiors and fresh landscapes contain strong graphic compositions
which divide space with broad planes of color, to which she adds
her distinct Realist detail to highlight the subject matter.
She completes her major paintings in her New York studio, working
from her en plein air studies and collaged photographs. Dalton
Brown is able to portray an acute sense of time and place in
her work by her masterful rendering of light and shadow.
Born in Pennsylvania, Dalton Brown studied art at the prestigious
Académie Julian in Paris, and graduated from Oberlin
College in Ohio. Since 1975, she has shown her works in numerous
solo and selected group exhibitions across the U.S. Her works
are included in scores of museums and private and corporate
collections, amongst them the American Express Company, Commerce
Bancshares, Inc., Harpo, Inc., The Metropolitan Museum of Art,
New York, and the Tampa Museum of Art, Florida.
