In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, diverse forms of popular art appeared to be developing into a formidable faction of new painted realism. His alternative art movement found a kindred spirit in one of America’s most maligned underground artists, painter Robert Williams. It was he who brought the term “lowbrow” into the fine arts lexicon with his groundbreaking 1979 book, The Lowbrow Art of Robert Williams.
