Brown County Artist Biographies

Artists Who Lived and Worked in Brown County Indiana

Adolf Shulz who is considered the father of the Brown County Art Colony, moved to the area around 1914. As more and more artists heard about the scenic beauty of the area, they made painting trips on weekends and during the summer months to capture the Brown County landscape. Although there were many who were content with just visiting the very rustic and rural area, many were not.

The following artists are those who succumbed to the beauty, bought homes and setup studios in and around Nashville, IN., and lived there most, if not all of their lives.
