PAUL S. BROWN | Autumnal Distractions
  • PAUL S. BROWN | Autumnal Distractions


    Oil on Panel

    8" x 23½"/ 20 x 60 cms


    This beautiful original oil painting by Paul S. Brown depicts an autumnal selection of wine and cheese.  The flavours of chestnuts, stinky cheese (so Paul tells us!), and tawny port create this sumptuous autumnal display. Deep red and vibrant yellow leaves, fallen from the trees in Paul’s Dorset garden add to the variety of texture in this delightful piece.

    • A true Classical Realist, Paul’s focus is on universal beauty. He upholds rigorous standards in pursuit of this, working from life, emulating the techniques and materials of the old masters, painting on linen canvas, preparing his own paints by hand, and carefully selecting pigments and oils to his precise requirements.


      Paul was apprenticed to D. Jeffrey Mims, before honing his talents at the Cecil-Graves Studio in Florence, where his talent as an exquisite draftsman was instantly recognised. Paul went on to teach at the prestigious Florence Academy of Art, renowned for its commitment to the academic tradition.


      Paul’s keen passion for nature is felt throughout his work and the influence of his upbringing, a Huckleberry Finn childhood spent roaming the outdoors in North Carolina and studying the world around him, can be seen in every brushstroke. His perfectly composed works are rich with atmosphere and detail.
