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.
