Cecily Brown by Courtney J. Martin, Jason Rosenfeld, and Francine Prose. The first — and highly anticipated — monograph on one of the most influential painters of our time, who is included in our museum collection.
Cecily Brown is a British-born, New York-based artist who rose to prominence in the late 1990s. Originally influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Brown has over the years developed her unique voice, which investigates the sensual qualities of oil paint through a process inspired both by abstraction and realism. Through a range of reference to old master paintings and popular culture, Brown's symbolic language, exuberant brushwork, rich palette, intense energy, and embrace of the erotic have boldly redefined some of painting's historical canons.
