Benjamin Chambers Brown
Modern (19th century-1945) Painting
(Marion, AR, July 14, 1865 - January 19, 1942, Pasadena, CA)
Though the still lifes popular of the era often featured bowls or Indian baskets of California poppies, the icon of poppy covered slopes was probably only developed in the late 1890s. Brown wrote that on one of William Wendt's trips to southern California around 1900, he showed up at Brown's door "with a collection of poppy and other landscapes" looking for a studio in which to work. A seminal poppy picture painted by Wendt on a Malibu ranch in 1898 is known to be in a private collection.
