Known for her nostalgic and detailed artwork, Jennie Augusta Brownscombe (1850 – 1936) was nicknamed “the Normal Rockwell of her era.” Brownscombe was born in a log cabin, and began winning artistic awards while still a teenager. After her father’s death, she earned money and national acclaim selling prints of her paintings. Magazines, calendar firms and publishers widely reproduced her sentimental genre works and colonial American scenes. Brownscombe, who exhibited her work in the United States and Europe, founded the Art Students League and painted until age 81.

This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface.
