"The leading interpreter of Southern California landscape painting during the first decades of the 20th century, usurped the title “Dean of San Diego Painters” from Charles A. Fries (1854- 1940), according to some commentators. According to one writer, it was Braun who made San Diego’s leading contribution to the art scene during these early years."
