Note:
Robert Williams gives his paintings multiple titles that, inkeeping with his artistic style, humorously cross the line betweenhighbrow and lowbrow art. While the descriptive title of thepainting is Face Value, he provides two additional titles:
Museum Catalog Title: Shallow Superficial Illusions AndStereotypical Trappings Motivate The Pollyanna Achiever With TheSame Grasp Of Reality That Would Mistake Dogs And Cats As BarnyardAnimals And Eat And Milk Them
Colloquial Title: A Proclamation From Dreamland That Would RateEven Above The Ideal Ingrown Toenail
As an illustrator who worked with Ed (Big Daddy) Roth in the 1960s,a contributor to
Zap Comics
, and the founder of
JuxtapozArt Magazine
, Williams is known as the King of the Lowbrow ArtMovement. Yet he has also been celebrated by the "highbrow" artworld. A feature length documentary on the artist recentlypremiered at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and his work wasincluded in the 2010 Whitney Biennial.
