Alice 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 place. 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.
