Brown, Stewart (b.1947)

Born in England in 1947, Stewart Brown primarily worked in advertising and in the film industry through with a passion for antiques he eventually became a restorer and cabinet maker. On moving to France in 1995 his meeting with the painter Pierre Fonferrier revealed in him his true vocation and since then, this self-taught artist has sold his work through galleries in France, America, Holland, England and Morocco and has won numerous prizes. It is difficult to escape the exceptional realism that characterises his work. On richly worked backgrounds; fruits, vegetables or flowers contain in harmonious simplicity all the vibrant colours of the Provencal markets. In other paintings we find his nostalgia for ancient everyday objects abandoned in some dusty attic that he brings back to life with great care for detail and often with a touch of humour. It's always with the same meticulous precision that he offers us such warm realism that makes him both a classical and modern artist of great diversity.
