HGH comments: William Brookes seems to have been inspired by the work of Van Gogh. This is evident in the colors and painting style. Brooks was a cobbler by trade, painted as a hobby. Great Britain has lost an outstanding contributor with his early passing away, although he became well-known he never reaped the benefits of his art and unfortunately died poor. Which is the story of so many artists…including Van Gogh.
