Sierra Club


God damn and blast my soul! I will turn you straight out of my house if you go in for any kind of commercial life. Beggar yourself rather than refuse assistance to anyone whose genius you think shows promise of being greater than your own. - Ford Maddox Brown to his grandson

Ford Madox Brown (1821 - 1893, English painter of moral and historical subjects, notable for his perfection of the Pre-Raphaelite style. While he was closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelites Brotherhood, he was not allowed membership because of his foreign birth. One of his most famous images is "The Last of England", a portrait of a pair of stricken immigrants as they sail away on the ship that will take them from England forever. He was the grandfather of novelist Ford Madox Ford.
