Elizabeth Christie Austen Brown specialized in the saturated colors of early evening. She was skilled at distilling her compositions, jigsaw-like, to their essential forms. This is probably a view of the French countryside; Austen Brown and her artist husband, Robert Austen Brown (1857–1924), had a studio in the artist colony of Camiers, a village in northern France.
