Biography  
Roger Brown


Born in Alabama, he became one of the most celebrated of a group of Chicago artists called "Imagists," creating edgy, cartoon-like paintings of urban trauma.  His specialty were whimsical cityscapes that often touched upon social issues.

In 1987, a retrospective was held of his work at the Washington D.C. Hirshhorn Museum.  He donated a collection of 30 paintings and his homes in Chicago, La Conchita, California, and New Buffalo, Michigan to his alma mater, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
