Roger Brown Study Collection: Estate
Toward the end of his life Roger Brown began making major gifts to SAIC. In 1997 Brown bequeathed all the paintings unsold at the time of his death to SAIC, transferring the representation of his posthumous career to the School.
Works from the Estate Painting and Print collections are offered for sale to museums and private collectors and are available for loan to museum exhibitions. Proceeds from the sale of paintings and prints provide a significant source of operating support for the Roger Brown Study Collection and the Roger Brown/New Buffalo, MI property.
Kavi Gupta represents the Roger Brown Estate for SAIC.

The catalog of works by Roger Brown
We maintain a database catalog of Brown's work, including information on all known public and private collections that own works by Brown. We strive to locate all of Brown's works and we welcome collectors to contact us if you own a work(s) by Roger Brown. We do not share contact information; we notify collectors of queries for loans from museums, and/or reproduction permissions. SAIC owns the © to all works by Roger Brown (unless otherwise assigned), and licenses reproductions for all manner of publications. We attempt to notify owners when works are licensed for reproduction.
For additional information or to provide information for the Roger Brown database please contact RBSC staff at email@example.com.
We can make a wealth of artistic, personal, and intellectual resources from the RBSC archive available to scholars, curators, collectors, and others. The RBSC Archive includes Brown's sketchbooks; from these we can often provide images for a specific work or art or for a time frame in Brown's career. For some works we can provide provenance, exhibition and publication histories, and/or information about Brown's ideas and creative process.
