An American illustrator and painter best known for his New England scenes and portraits Brett's work was reproduced  in Harper's Weekly, Collier's Weekly, and The Saturday Evening Post.
Brett's painting and illustrations encompassed the same arena as Norman Rockwell, to which he can be compared. Brett sought to capture on canvas a moment suspended in time, often dealing with subject matter quintessential to American life. Like Rockwell, Brett's paintings include plot, emotion, and a nostalgia for times past
(Cape Cod Times, "Brett Illustrates Charm of Cape Era Gone By", December 14, 2000).
