Preparing biographies

Approved biography for George Brookwell
(Courtesy of Christian Peterson)

 
  
George Brookwell was born on June 20, 1866, and died in Los Angeles on August 8, 1941.
 
He exhibited in five of the Los Angeles Photographic Salons, beginning with the first one in 1918, then in 1919, 1920, 1921, and 1923. These salons were shown at the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art, predecessor to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Pictorialists considered them the most prestigious West Coast venue, equivalent to the Eastís Pittsburgh salon, which had equally high standards for entry. They were run by the Camera Pictorialists of Los Angeles, a group founded by Edward Weston and ten other photographers in 1914 and always limited to a very small number of members. Brookwell was admitted to membership in the Camera Pictorialists shortly before the second salon, according to a review of it in the February 1919 issue of Photo Era
