Robert Williams, Introduction: Robert Williams brought the term “lowbrow” into the fine arts lexicon, with his groundbreaking 1979 book, The Lowbrow Art of Robt. Williams. Williams pursued a career as a fine arts painter years before joining the art studio of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth in the mid-1960’s. In this role as the famous custom car builder’s art director, he moved into the rebellious, anti-war circles of early underground comix.
