George Browne was born in New York City in 1918. Struck down at the age of forty in a tragic shooting accident, George Browne is known to have completed only a few hundred finished works in his lifetime. The thoughtful rendering of his sporting and wildlife scenes suggests a man full of talent and promise. Due to his untimely death, Browne left behind a limited and highly coveted body of work. Following in the footsteps of artists/sportsmen like Frank W. Benson (1862-1951), Carl Clemens Moritz Rungius (1869-1959), and Aiden Lassell Ripley (1896-1969), George Browne painted the waterfowl and upland game birds that he also hunted.
