Other Men’s Flowers is a portfolio of text-based prints by fifteen London artists curated by Joshua Compston (1970-96) and published by The Paragon Press. Compston took the title, Other Men’s Flowers, from an anthology of wartime poetry compiled by Field-Marshal Viscount Wavell (1883-1950). Don Brown’s contribution to Other Men’s Flowers is a list of categories separated by semi-colons, derived from a running list Brown has been compiling on his computer for several years. The categories include general groups, activities and occupations or professions. The small scale text is printed by monotype in a narrow column centered on the page.

English sculptor Don Brown studied at the Central School of Art, London, and the Royal College of Art, London. Executed in materials including resin, silver and gold and often modelled on his own body or that of his wife Yoko, Brown’s figurative sculptures reference the idealism and representational perfection of classical antiquity. Brown has exhibited internationally since the 1990s. His work is held in the collections of Tate Britain and Scheringa Museum of Realist Art, Spanbroek.View Artist
