George Brookshaw (Born 1751) was born in Birmingham. He was a highly skilled botanical painter and excelled in figurative and landscape designs as well. Being commercially minded, he recognized that his reputation rested on innovative techniques and styles. He trained as an artisan and apprenticed under a Birmingham ‘japanner’ and painter called Samuel Troughton. In 1767 Brookshaw ran away and nothing else is known of his formative years. Brookshaw learnt ‘stoved-japanning’ techniques under Samuel Troughton. This technique was in high demand in 18th-century Britain and most manufacturing workshops were based in Birmingham, but Brookshaw decided to set up his workshop in London, within reach of wealthy clients. He mainly made stove-japanned and painted furniture for the wealthy in the society. In the mid-1790s Brookshaw decided to leave the furniture trade for good. A financial dispute or a scandal seems to have ended his furniture career, but being resourceful as he was, he used his draughtsman’s skills to become a professional botanical illustrator. He adapted his artistic skills to botanical illustration under the alias G. Brown or John. Brookshaw illustrated and wrote painting manuals and also taught flower painting to ladies. His work attracted many distinguished patrons since he had the superior and sophisticated skills that were associated with French designs. Brookshaw’s reputation was such that he shared prestigious commissions with the likes of Robert Adam, the famous architect and designer. In 1804, His masterpiece, Pomona Britannica, was published under his own name. The book was dedicated to the Prince Regent. Today, Framed George Brookshaw art are found in many collections all over the world.
