On the occasion of Amanda Douberly's Art History course, "Modern, Post-Modern, Anti-Modern" (Spring semester 2014, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago), this introduction to the Roger Brown Study Collection, interpreted through a surrealist lens, was created to orient students to the RBSC's history before they explore the collection in person. Music playing faintly in the background was composed by Ross Crean, from the CD "Kenneth Gerleve's Summerland".

The comparisons between Roger Brown's early (1966-67) paintings were first made by Chiara Giulianotti and Jue Ma, in their analysis of Brown's early works, in Nick Lowe's Collections Practicum class in 2013.
