Christie's is pleased to offer works from the Estate of Irving Brown (lots 131-158)
Irving Brown was part of an early generation of individuals who helped to collect and define modern art in the United States. With a particular enthusiasm for works on paper, he focused his collecting on artists of the Stieglitz circle, scouring New York for rare finds amongst leading collectors and dealers such as Dorothy Miller and Edith Halpert. During a lifetime of passionate collecting, Irving Brown assembled a selective collection reflecting his unique taste and commitment to American Modernism.
