Birth: 1863
Death: 1943

Painter, musician, pupil of Lucien Pissarro. He was introduced to Lucien Pissarro, eldest son of Camille, the French Impressionist, in 1911. To that point an amateur watercolourist, under Pissarro's tutelage Brown became a gifted post-impressionist painter in oils and watercolours, exhibiting by invitation in the major Post-Impressionist & Futurist show of 1913 - with most of the Camden Town Group as well as Bonnard, Cezanne, Gaugin, Signac and Van Gogh - and at the New English Art Club. He on occasions and up to the mid-1920s employed the pseudonym 'Prior Conway', an amalgam of his own father's middle name and his first wife's maiden name.
