Very little is known about Brown(e) beyond his work as an artist. It has proved almost impossible to identify him due to the number of Brown(e)s in the official records and the task has not been made easier by the artist who signed himself first J. R. or I. R. Brown(understandable since the initial ‘J’ was often written as ‘I’), T. R. Browne and later just R.Browne. In fact his only consistent feature is an easily identifiable style. He could have been the convict John Brown who arrived at Sydney Cove in February 1810 on the Anne. This man was listed as a ‘painter in the colony’ in the convict indents andwas granted a ticket of leave by the authorities probably in the hope that he would put his skills to good use for the benefit of the colony.
