Trails of a paintbrush by Nicholas R Brewer( Book )

1 edition published in 1938 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the autobiography of a successful nineteenth-century Minnesotan artist raised on a pioneer farm along the Root River near High Forest (Olmstead County) in southeastern Minnesota. Nicholas Brewer displayed early artistic talent and left home for St. Paul at eighteen in search of training as a painter. Supporting himself through odd jobs and the sale of crayon portraiture, he eventually studied under Dwight Tryon in New York and held an exhibit at the National Academy there. Brewer's life story describes a tension between his desire to support his wife and children in Minnesota and his need to live in a large city in order to develop a financially viable career. Eventually, Brewer resolved this dilemma by arranging exhibits of his works which were sponsored by local art leagues throughout the burgeoning cities of the South and Midwest. This not only enhanced his reputation but gave him an expanding network of clients and patrons. Trails of a Paintbrush illuminates the process by which cultural institutions and patronage spread across America, and its author also shares many of his own insights into the art world of late nineteenth-century America
