Bernard Brussel-Smith Art

American, 1914-1969

Bernard Brussel-Smith was a well-known 20th-century artist and illustrator, specializing in the medium of wood engraving.

Brussel-Smith was born, raised and lived most of his life in New York City, which was a constant source of imagery for the artist, from the Depression-era '40s through the postwar '50s until his death. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and the New School for Social Research in New York. He later taught art at the Brooklyn Museum, Cooper Union, City College and the National Academy. Brussel-Smith was elected an Associate Member of the National Academy in 1952 and became a full member in 1973.

Brussel-Smith's work is included in various public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, New York Public Library and Carnegie Institute.

Old Violinist - Late 19th Century Figurative Lithograph
By John George Brown
Located in Soquel, CA
Finely detailed late 19th century chromo-lithograph portrait of a violinist street musician by John George Brown (British, 1831-1913). Many of Brown’s paintings were reproduced in lithography (Chromo-lithograpy), as is the case with the one offered here. Presented in a rustic antique Oak wood frame with giltwood fillet. Image, 15.63"H x 10.63"W. John George Brown was a British citizen and an American painter born in Durham, England. His parents apprenticed him to the career of glass worker at the age of fourteen, in an attempt to dissuade him from pursuing painting. He studied nights at the School of Design in Newcastle-on-Tyne while working as a glass cutter there between 1849 and 1852, and evenings at the Trustees Academy in Edinburgh while working at the Holyrood Glass Works between 1852 ad 1853. After moving to New York City in 1853, he studied with Thomas Seir Cummings at the National Academy of Design where he was elected a National Academician in 1861. Brown was the Academy’s vice-president from 1899 to 1904. Around 1855, he worked for the owner of the Brooklyn Glass Company, and later he married the daughter of his employer. His father-in-law encouraged his artistic abilities, supporting him financially, letting Brown pursue painting full-time. In 1866, he became one of the charter members of the Water-Color Society, of which he was president from 1887 to 1904. Brown became famous for his depictions of street urchins found of the streets of New York (bootblacks, street musicians, posy sellers, newsboys, etc.). Brown’s art is best characterized as British genre painting...
