"He was the essential San Francisco artist," said Harry Parker, director of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, who knew Mr. Collins well. "His political views and his quirky artistic style, his association with the poetry scene, his advocacy of gay rights — all the issues that came into his work were so representative of the San Francisco perspective. Only here could you imagine work like his being made."
