Ford Maddox Brown (1821-1893)
Born in France, Ford Maddox Brown was an important historical painter. He trained in Belgium. Brown was never a popular painter - his style was too eccentric and individualistic. Dante Gabriel Rossetti became his pupil in 1848 and although Brown was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, he never joined the brotherhood. In 1863 Brown produced his masterpiece, "Work," but his best known painting, done in 1855, remains "The Last of England." Brown used his wife, Emma Hill, as the model for the latter.
