2nd Day of Christmas: Collecting Larry Brown's Universality

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Greg holds his 2nd day of Christmas gift: Larry Brown's "Untitled" (2001) from the Exquisite Corpse series. (Note: Is this the face of someone enjoying their 12 Days of Christmas?)
On the 2nd Day of Christmas, my true-love gave to me, a limited-edition print by Larry Brown. Born in Brunswick, NJ in 1942, he is a highly regarded NYC painter who works in oil on canvas and tempera paints on paper and deals with themes of science and universality. In recent years, he has focused on climate change. Larry Brown's work is included in the collections at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and The Newark Museum of Art to name only two. Today's gift is from a suite of 18 lithographs by visiting artists at the Tamarind Institute.
