Biography (Courtesy of AskArt) : Maurice Braun (1877-1941) is known as an important American/California Impressionist artist. He was born in the small town of Nagy-Bittse, Hungary. His family came to live in New York City when he was preschool age. Braun’s formal art education was at the National Academy of Design in New York City, followed by a year of study with the distinguished New York artist and teacher, William Merritt Chase. Braun traveled in Europe for a year in 1902, visiting museums primarily in Eastern Europe. On his return to New York, Braun painted there for several years. He became known as a portrait painter, although he also painted landscapes in New England. In 1909 he left New York to establish his home in San Diego. He would make his home in San Diego until his death in 1941. CONDITION: Uncleaned with general grime, old tear with paint loss in middle sky area above a tree branch.
