Franklin Peleg Brownell (1857 - 1946)

Canadian Impressionist painter Franklin Peleg Brownell was a student of William Bouguereau and Tony Robert-Fluery as well as a graduate of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Before the age of thirty he became the Principal at the Ottawa Art School, and would eventually head the Woman's Art Association of Ottawa as well. His influence as a teacher and painter during his lifetime was considerable, especially as an early advocate of Impressionist landscapes and studies.

He worked in a variety of mediums, including oil and pastel, as well as watercolor, and he painted portraits, marine and genre scenes and flower studies in addition to his many landscapes. He traveled widely, including painting excursions throughout Europe, the West Indies, the United States and Canada.

The National Gallery of Canada has a selection of Brownell's works and many others remain in private collections.
