Malki-Ballena Press is proud to announce our latest publication, An Artist's Portfolio, The California Sketches of Henry B. Brown, 1851-52.Over a century and a half ago, during the waning moments of the frenzied search for gold that was in the process of tragically altering California's landscape and the lives of her native peoples forever, an obscure artist named Henry B. Brown set out to capture-in a series ofbeautifully rendered drawings-the scenery and lifeways to be found in the Sierra foothills and Sacramento Valley. The result was a collection of drawings that depict both a world on the verge of profound change and the agents of that change. Here are pristine landscapes, NativeAmericans quietly going about their daily lives, turbulent mining camps, and empathetic portraits of some of the men and women that Brown encountered.
