John George Brown
American, 1831–1913
Pull for the Shore, 1878
Oil on canvas

In this ideal of teamwork, old and young row in unison to bring their tiny craft home through swelling seas. John George Brown based Pull for the Shore on sketches made on Grand Manan Island off the far northern coastline of Maine. Each face is a portrait of a local fisherman whom Brown met and sketched, but this epic New England battle of man against nature also may address American politics of the Reconstruction era. Following decades of sectional conflict and the violence of the Civil War, North and South struggled in the 1870s to heal the nation’s wounds and work together toward a prosperous future.

About the Artist

John George Brown

At the dawn of the twentieth century, J.G. Brown (American, 1831-1913) was America's richest and best-known genre painter. Born and raised in England, Brown trained in a glass-cutting factory in Newcastle-on-Tyne, though he took evening art classes both in Newcastle and, later, at the Trustees Academy in Edinburgh. In 1853, following a brief stint in London as a portrait painter, he sailed for America and settled in Brooklyn. By 1860 he had moved to New York and secured working space in the newly opened Tenth Street Studio Building, the city's most prestigious atelier.
