Reinhold Braun was best known for his paintings of horses and
battles. He was educated in Schwäbisch-Hall and from 1837 onwards
in Stuttgart. He continued his studies in Munich. He failed
to obtain permission to become a war painter during the war
in Schleswig-Holstein but he was a witness of the siege of Rastatt
Crown princess Olga invited him to Stuttgart, where he created a series of genre paintings. In 1872 he moved to Munich where his work had been exhibited for many years. In 1876 his American wife Mary Deane died and during his last years eye problems made it hard for him to work.
His younger brother Louis Brown had been his pupil before he embarked on a succesful career of his own.
