    This may be a long shot but I am looking for information about R Warburton. I have a print of Franz Josef Glacier by him signed and dated 17.10.54

    Thanks in advance

    I find this article really interesting because for years I have been attempting to find out information about the artist Alan C Browne, and you seem to have supplied it in an indirect way. My mother, born at Franz Josef in 1910, was given two paintings by this artist for her 21st birthday and she left them to me when she died in 1998. Thank you for solving the mystery.

    Interesting . I found this page while looking for mention of Alan C Browne Artist. I and two climbing pals met Alan at Easter time 1962. in the Ogwen valley N.Wales. He was living and painting out of the back of a small van. I was then a twenty year old climbing instructor and guide. Alan in earlier years had also been a guide, in NZ. We spent a number of days in his company and I have always remembered him.
    He later sent to me a copy of an article featuring the cottage he lovingly restored at Appley Bridge.
    Though I have never been to NZ my daughter and her husband spent a long holiday there and my grandson was also conceived there. I also have an old climbing friend Breda Arkless who up to her death was a well known NZ mountain guide in the Mt. Cook area.
    Like many old men I could ramble on but I was thrilled to have found this article about Allan’s son who bears, if I may say so a striking resemblance to his father, and it appears, continues the family tradition of painting.
