James Brown

James Brown

James Brown (1819-77) was born at Milngavie, near Glasgow. He was trained as a calico printer, but, evincing artistic talent at an early age, his employer transferred him to the designing branch. He came to New Zealand in 1850, teaching himself engraving and becoming highly proficient at the art. He was also a caricaturist and made many cartoons for reproduction, notably in J. Barr's Old Identities (1879).
