Upon analyzing Brown's painting, He's Not My Type, 1869 the traditional view that he was simply a painter of street urchins is misleading. He was equally adept in representing figures in other settings. Brown, who epitomized the popular mode in art which stressed sentiment and anecdote, contrasted with Winslow Homer's more objective vision in 19th century American genre.
