Roger Brown 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, Michigan property.

The Roger Brown Estate of SAIC is represented by Kavi Gupta.

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 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.
