    schema:description "In this first book to fully explore Joan Brown's artistic career, Karen Tsujimoto provides an overview of Brown's life, from her San Francisco childhood to her years as a mature artist and teacher. Jacquelynn Baas focuses on Brown's use of universal and personal symbolism by analyzing one of her most celebrated paintings, The Bride. In addition to many fine reproductions of her work and personal photographs from her family's collection, the authors have included material from extensive interviews with Joan Brown that allow her to speak for herself about art and the creative process."@en ;
