American, 1907 - 1961
Born in Yonkers, New York, Byron Browne trained initially as an academic artist who won numerous awards at the National Academy at an early age, Browne decided in 1929 to paint abstractly. Perhaps his greatest influence was Picasso, but in general all the cubists influenced him to some degree. He joined with Balcomb Greene and his wife Rosalind Bengelsdorf to form American Abstract Artists in 1935.
In spite of Depression, and later WWII, Browne managed to survive and create interest in his work and by the late 1940’s was commanding good prices. By the mid 1950’s he felt abandoned by the new abstract artists and created more romantic imagery until his death in 1961.
