the Hairy who

Chicago Imagist: Sculptor, Painter and Collector Roger Brown

February 19, 2015

Lot 286, Roger Brown, Just Around the Corner (Part I & Part II), 1975

American sculptor, painter, and collector Roger Brown was a defining figure in the postwar Chicago art scene–but the range of his influences and artistic impact were national in scope. Brown was a leading member of a cadre of fantastical figurative Chicago painters who styled themselves the “Hairy Who.” Members of the group, and associated artists working in the city at the time, are now best known as the Chicago Imagists. LAMA is pleased to offer Brown’s significant corner diptych in March 1, 2015 Modern Art & Design Auction.
