Marc Brown at R. Michelson Galleries

Forty-five years ago Marc Brown created Arthur, the Aardvark. Since then Arthur has sold more than 65 million books in the United States alone. His television show is seen by children in more than 100 countries and territories around the world. Arthur has become a fixture on The New York Times Bestseller list, and stars in an Emmy Award-winning PBS series.

But Marc Brown’s art career encompasses much more than Arthur. He has been awarded a Children’s Choice Award, a Boston Globe/Horn Book Honor Award, a Library of Congress Book of the Year Award, among many other honors. R. Michelson Galleries is thrilled to have Marc Brown in our roster of artists.
