About this artwork

With Philip Hanson and Christina Ramberg, Roger Brown exhibited as part of the False Image—a group of younger artists influenced by the Hairy Who. Collectively, these groups were referred to as the Chicago Imagists, and they shared congruent ideas about making expressive, intensely personal art, and forming impressive collections of works by selftaught artists and flea-market objects that betray ingenious designs and inherent beauty despite being kitschy. Throughout his career, Brown was drawn to cinematic or voyeuristic images of Chicago, as this etching, developed in a graduate class with Vera Berdich, demonstrates.
