Brush, George de Forest
George de Forest Brush, 1855–1941, American painter, b. Shelbyville, Tenn., studied in New York City at the National Academy of Design and with Gérôme in Paris. His early, scrupulously realistic paintings of Native Americans gave way, in later work, to Italianate figure compositions. Examples of his work are Mother and Child (Mus. of Fine Arts, Boston) and Mother and Child (Corcoran Gall.).
