Vincent Brown, often called the first 'modern' painter in Queensland, was born in Brisbane in 1901 and began painting watercolours at the age of 16. He became the protege of art promoter Adolph Albers under whose auspices he exhibited in Brisbane and Sydney. In 1936 he went overseas and from 1936 to 1940 he studied at the following schools: Slade School of Fine Arts, University of London; Grosvenor School of Modern Art, London; Central School of Arts and Crafts, London and at the Ruskin School of Drawing, Oxford University. He was Head of the Art Department at GARW Grammar School in South Wales, UK. During his time in the UK, Vincent also studied drama at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London, the London Theatre Studio, Michel St. Denis and the Summer School, Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, Stratford-on-Avon. He returned to Australia in 1940 where he lectured in Fine Arts at the University of Queensland, Brisbane and spent the war years working in 3rd Division Concert Party AIF. Before leaving again in 1948 for the UK, he held four one-man exhibitions. After thirty years of living in the UK, he finally returned to Australia in 1977 and found what was virtually a treasure trove of early works at the family home in Brisbane. These paintings had lain for all those years in a shed under the house and the etching plates had even been buried under the ground! Vincent Brown died in Brisbane in 2001.
