Brown, Ford Madox
Brown, Ford Madox (1821–93) English painter, closely associated with (although not a member of) the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. A meticulous draughtsman, he was in contact with the German Nazarenes before settling in England in 1845. The Pre-Raphaelite influence can be seen in The Last of England (1855) and Work (1852–63). Towards the end of his career, he produced a cycle of paintings on the history of Manchester (1878–93). He was the grandfather of the writer Ford Madox Ford.
