     Who is William McClure Brown? The short answer: he was a Canadian painter and print-maker living in Wales. This still leaves us asking who was the man behind the painter’s brush? And just what happened during the time his friends and family refer to as the “lost years”? Why would he refuse to speak of this period in, even with those who were closest to him? 
     William Brown was born in Canada on December 11, 1953 and made his home in Wales from 1977 until his untimely death on July 17th, 2008. In the 1990s, when he responded to his daughter Ila’s request to know more about the man than the painter, he said there was nothing much to know beyond
