'In June', John Alfred Arnesby Brown

Brown was well known for his paintings of cattle. This, a typical work, shows what look like prize-winning bulls standing beneath an expansive and dramatic sky. By 1917, Brown was mainly working in Norfolk and it is likely that he made his studies for this piece there.
