Grafton Tyler Brown: San Francisco Lithographer – Wednesday, February 22 at 7:00 p.m. Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) lived for art.  Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 176 years ago today, into a free African American family, Brown reinvented himself in California, passing into white society in San Francisco in 1861.  Talented, self-confident, and aggressive, Brown seized all opportunities during 20 years to advance his career as a commercial artist and outshine his competitors.  G.T. Brown & Co. Lithographers produced an incredible amount of top-notch work: city views, maps, sheet music, advertising posters, mining stock certificates, and billheads (invoices) of great variety and consistent artistic excellence.  Dr. Robert J. Chandler will introduce us to Grafton Tyler Brown, depict his lithographic work, and compare it with that of his rivals.  A few words and slides will cover Brown’s skill as an oil painter from 1882-1891 in the Pacific Northwest.
