Venus Over Manhattan Adds the Roger Brown Estate

by The Editors of ARTnews

New York’s Venus Over Manhattan gallery has added to its roster the estate of American painter Roger Brown, who died in 1997. Kavi Gupta gallery in Chicago will also continue to work with the artist’s estate. A key figure of the Chicago Imagist school, which rejected the era’s dominant Minimalist and Conceptual trends, Brown created vivid, irreverent paintings that often skewered pop culture, politics, and religion. 



His work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna, among many others. A survey of Brown’s work was recently on view at Venus Over Manhattan through January 11.
