Houses in Art – Alice Dalton Brown

I learn everyday, with every post I wright, with you and by myself. Sometimes I get lucky and discover a real jewel. Art of Alice Dalton Brown is more then a jewel, it is like a dream coming true,like impersonation of freedom and sunshine, like being 5 again, like knowing how to fly.

Alice Dalton Brown was born in Danville, Pennsylvania in 1939, and grew up in Ithaca, New York. She began her studies in France at L’Académie Julian, Paris and at L’Université de Grenoble, Grenoble. She then entered Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, as an English major, and later transferred to Oberlin College, Oberlin, Ohio, where, in 1962, she received the B.A. degree in art. She lived in New York City from 1970 to 2005 and now resides in New York’s Hudson Valley. (info from official website)

The author of Global Gallery believes that "as a contemporary Realist using the medium of either oil on canvas or pastel on paper, Dalton Brown achieves beautifully detailed scenes of airy domestic views, breezy porch settings and dappled seascapes which inspire a romantic, meditative mood. Her light-filled interiors and fresh landscapes contain strong graphic compositions which divide space with broad planes of color, to which she adds her distinct Realist detail to highlight the subject matter. She completes her major paintings in her New York studio, working from her en plain air studies and collaged photographs. Dalton Brown is able to portray an acute sense of time and place in her work by her masterful rendering of light and shadow".

But honestly, you don't need to be that wordy to describe worthy art!
