I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

Ford Madox Brown (April 16, 1821 – October 6, 1893) was an English painter of moral and historical subjects, notable for his distinctively graphic and often Hogarthian version of the Pre-Raphaelite style.

Arguably, his most notable painting was Work (1852–1865). Brown spent the latter years of his life painting The Manchester Murals for Manchester Town Hall which depicted Mancunian history.
