SAIC Roger Brown Painting and Print Collections

Brown's generosity to the School included a remarkable group of paintings and prints. In order to promote Brown's work and preserve his artistic legacy, paintings have been organized into two collections:

The Roger Brown Permanent Collection is a study collection of 52 works by Brown that are available for study and exhibition. The Permanent Collection represents an overview of Brown's works from the mid 1960s to his last work in 1997, including six works he held back for himself, now called "Roger Brown's Roger Browns."

The Roger Brown Estate Collection of Paintings is a larger collection of works that span Brown's entire career, and is especially rich in paintings from the mid 1980s through 1997. Paintings from this collection are offered for sale to museums and private collectors, and are available for loan to museum exhibitions.

The Roger Brown Estate Collection of Prints is a collection of impressions of sixteen printed works representing Brown's printmaking activities between 1979 and 1993, utilizing the processes of lithography, color silkscreen, color woodcut, etching, and aquatint. Prints from this collection are offered for sale to museums and private collectors.
