Description
(6) Beulah Brown Watercolor Floral Paintings: Six Beulah Brown a.k.a. Beulah Elizabeth Hazelrigg Brown, (American, 1892 – 1987), 20th century, watercolor and graphite on paper paintings, each depicting a floral bouquet including lilacs, hibiscus, roses, pansies; each image signed on the face, 'Beulah H. Brown', by the artist. Dimensions are: largest paper size - 13 inches tall X 8 1/4 inches wide, while the mat measures 17 inches tall X 12 inches wide and the smallest measures: paper size 12 inches tall X 9 inches wide. All measurements are approximate.

Provenance: Oakridge Auction Gallery has been entrusted to bring an archive of paintings by Francis Focer Brown (American, 1891–1971) and Beulah H. Brown (American, 1892–1987), a.k.a. Beulah Elizabeth Hazelrigg Brown, to market. This archive is believed to have been part of the personal collection of one of the artists and was recently discovered languishing in storage. This is the first time in this generation these pieces have been seen and offered publicly.

Artist Biography: Beulah Brown a.k.a. Beulah Elizabeth Hazelrigg Brown, (American, 1892 – 1987), is a painter, designer and teacher who was part of the Group of Twelve. The “Group of Twelve” included contemporary, female artists from Indiana. The Group was known for their ability to create works which blended physical, intellectual and emotional intensity and included artists Betsy Stirratt, Charlene Marsh, Karen Thompson and Bonnie Sklarski. Brown studied at the John Herron Art Institute and was taught by William Forsyth. At this time, she met and married fellow artist Francis Focer Brown. The couple taught art in New Richmond and Mitchell Indiana. Beulah had an interest in fabric design and patterns, creating bold, abstract designs which pre-dated the Pattern and Decoration (P&D) movement of the 1970s, in addition to the stylized compositions, she also painted tightly rendered, precise floral compositions relying on her garden for inspiration and in December 1949 Brown added snow-scapes to her repertoire. Biography paraphrased from: Judith Vale Newton and Carol Ann Weiss, Skirting the Issue: Stories of Indiana's Historical Women Artists, 2004.
