George BrowneÕs untimely death in a tragic hunting accident at the age of 40 remains one of the great ÒWhat IfsÓ in American Sporting Art. Looking at his masterful paintings of big game animals and game birds, one wonders how much more proficient he would, or could, have become. The son of a very fine painterÑBelmore BrowneÑyoung George abandoned formal education at an early age, receiving his training in woodcraft and painting at his fatherÕs side.
