Despite his British citizenship, John George Brown was an American artist who worked primarily in genre scenes. He was also a naturalized citizen of Canada. However, his art was influenced by the art of his native land, and many of his paintings are located in public collections. 

In addition to landscapes, Brown also produced a number of still lifes that are reminiscent of the 18th century. His earliest paintings show street children in their natural habitats. His early works were often inspired by Homer and Johnson, and he was influenced by their work. The subjects of his works are usually rural scenes, but he also painted scenes that depict aristocratic society. Some of his best-known works include "The Boy in the Glass Factory," "The Farm," and "The Boy at the Bridge."

In his book Hours with Artists, G. W. Sheldon describes J. G. as a "realist of the first water." He further elaborates on the character of the boy in the painting titled Cleaning Fish." His work also includes a number of works on Grand Manan Island. The exhibition was held in New York City in 1875, and the American Watercolor Society advertised it in the Boston Daily Evening Transcript.
