Cecily Brown
Brown is a British artist and graduate of the Slade School of Art who has lived and worked in New York since the 1990s. Her work combines abstraction and figuration, transcending classical notions of genre and narrative by drawing on a wide range of art historical references. Inspired by the fantastical visual worlds of Hieronymus Bosch and Francisco Goya, the organizational principles of William Hogarth, and the gestural expressionism of Willem de Kooning, Brown creates energetic and atmospheric canvases that swirl with fragmented bodies. Brown’s work is included in museum collections worldwide. In 2018–19, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen presented "Where, When, How Often and with Whom," a twenty-year survey of Brown’s paintings, drawings, and prints. Recently, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire displayed a major exhibition of new paintings Brown created in response to the palace and its collections.
