George Browne’s untimely death in a tragic hunting accident at the age of 40 remains one of the great “What Ifs” in American Sporting Art. One wonders, looking at his masterful paintings of big game animals and gamebirds, just how much more proficient he would, or could, have become. The son of a very fine painter and famed explorer–Belmore Browne–young George abandoned formal education at an early age, receiving his training in woodcraft and painting at his father’s side. Despite his early demise, George Browne conveyed a deep understanding of the patterns and beauties of the natural world. The works in these lots, drawn from and authorized by his estate, offer insight into his profound connection with the rhythms of form and color in nature and his determination to honor them in his paintings.
