Robert Williams: The Father of Exponential Imagination at The Book Palace

Ref: ROBERTWILLIAMS (click for larger picture)

This career retrospective showcases the “lowbrow” artist's “realistic” oil paintings, drawings, sculptures, and works in other media.

This is a comprehensive, career-spanning, collection of the iconic painter's fine art, including every one of his oil paintings, along with a selection of his drawings, sculptures, and multimedia works. Williams pursued a career as a fine arts painter years before joining the art studio of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth in the mid-1960s. From this position, he moved into the rebellious, anti-war circles of early underground comix, as one of the celebrated Zap cartoonists.

Featuring an introductory essay by Coagula Art Journal founder Mat Gleason, along with a new art manifesto and foreword by Williams himself (the former of whom brought the term "lowbrow" into the fine arts lexicon), as well as tons of rare photos and ephemera.
