GEORGE DE FOREST BRUSH (18J5 -), American painter, was born at Shelbyville, Tennessee, on the 28th of September 1855. He was a pupil of J. L. Gerome at Paris, and became a member of the National Academy of Design, New York. From 1883 onwards, he attracted much attention by his. paintings of North American Indians, his "Moose Hunt," "Aztec King" and "Mourning her Brave" achieving great popularity and showing the strong influence of Gerome. These were followed by picture portraits, particularly of mother and child, largely suggestive of the work of the Dutch, Flemish and German masters, carefully arranged as to line and mass, and worked out in great detail with consummate technical skill. Several of his paintings have for subject his own children and his wife; one of these is in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
