Notice biographique
Known for her oil portraits, landscapes, genre, and flower paintings, Maria Brooks studied at the South Kensington and Royal Academy Schools in London. She opened a studio in the Windsor Hotel, Montreal, in 1881, and was known to be working in Quebec City in 1886. Sometime after this, she left Canada for the United States, painting in New York in 1889 and 1900. She was a member of the American Watercolour Society and the Society of British Artists. Societies with which Brooks exhibited include the Royal Academy (1869-90), the Art Association of Montreal (1883-92), the Royal Canadian Academy (1885-86), the Ontario Society of Artists (1885) and the Brooklyn Art Association (1891-92). Her works were also shown at exhibitions in Charlotte, N.C., and Syracuse, N.Y. (1898), both of which garnered her a medal.
