Brown collects books, objects from flea markets,
and artwork by students and friends as well as sentimental objects. Opposite top: near the kitchen,
a yellow painted wood and plaster figure with an
outstretched arm, by Robert Brady, stands near a
collection of baseball mitts displayed in a stairwell.
Opposite bottom: In the older section of the living
area are more books, a gouache painting on paper,
“Espaliering the Pear Tree”, 2002, a vintage cher-rywood dining table and arrow-back dining chairs
from Ohio are family heirlooms he used as a child.
This page: Near a vintage wood and fabric sofa, a
multicolored etching of feet by Alex Katz, issued
by Crown Point Press, is placed next to flea market
finds; it rests on a blond wood table by artist Allan
Adams, 1982, against the new partition wall. In the
background, near a dog-alcove is a hand-carved
post by Oakland artist John Abduljami. Stairs lead
up to the artist’s loft bedroom.
