Herb Brown, Expressionist, dies at 88

I wanted to inform you all that Herb Brown passed away on Thanksgiving night at the age of 88.

His work was pioneering – and though he had a pedigree - studying with Max Beckmann at the Brooklyn Museum Art School – and was a member of the scene that produced Pollock, de Kooning, and Kline, Herb lacked the skills of self-promotion that would have granted him distinction, and spent much of his life trying to promote his work in the ways he knew how. His life was truly colorful – full of amazing characters, stories and art – as was his personality, and his contributions to modern painting – I think – deserve a place in our memory.

with love,
