Grafton Tyler Brown was one of a small number of recognized African American painters to work in the West in the 1800s. Born in Pennsylvania in 1841, he moved to San Francisco, California, and worked as a lithographer and commercial artist. He traveled and lived throughout the West, painting the variety of landscapes he encountered along the way. Brown sketched Castle Geyser, Yellowstone, on-site on September 6, 1890, and the canvas was completed in 1891 at his Helena, Montana, studio.
You can find this painting on display in our Western Art Galleries at the Eiteljorg Museum.
