This exhibition catalogue chronicles the artistic achievements of painter Frederick J. Brown. The catalogue includes more than thirty color plates. This catalogue Frederick J. Brown: Portraits in Jazz, Blues, and Other Icons was written by exhibition curator Lowery Stokes Sims, Ph.D., Director of the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. The catalogue chronicles the artistic achievements of painter Frederick J. Brown. The catalogue includes more than thirty color plates.

Frederick J. Brown is one of America's most prolific expressionist artists, often described as a key player in the 20th century art world, and a rule breaker with his own distinct style. He is a modern American storyteller, combining his interest in jazz and blues music, Native American and African culture, primitive folk art and European religious paintings to chronicle the American experience of those big and small, from Presidents to the common man. His portraits of African-Americans and American-Indians honor his own rich heritage and ensure their continued presence in the nation's cultural memory, while his series on blues and jazz musicians acknowledges their creative contributions and remembers their collective hardships. Brown's paintings are in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary of Art, and the White House.
